Gastroenterology is a premier service of Karuna hospital offering consultation and comprehensive care for individuals with diseases of the esophagus, bowel, liver and pancreas, as well as gastrointestinal infections, gallstones, nutritional disorders, and other disorders of the digestive system.
Most GI studies and procedures are performed on an outpatient basis in Karuna Hospital's state-of-the-art Endoscopy Room. The Endoscopy Room offers a welcoming and comfortable environment for patients and supports our GI providers with the latest technology for a variety of procedures.
Endoscopy procedures are performed for patients suffering from stomach or intestinal problems. During an endoscopy, a doctor inserts a lighted, flexible tube called an endoscope into a natural body opening. A camera in the endoscope allows the doctor to examine inside the patient's body without invasive surgery.
