The Interventional Endoscopy Center at Stony Brook Medicine was established in 2008 to evaluate, diagnose and treat complex diseases and cancers of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which require specialized medical expertise and technically advanced procedures previously unavailable locally. Since then, it has developed into a premier center comprised of world-class physicians offering the latest technology and state-of-the-art care.
Innovative Care Unique to Suffolk County and Beyond
Endoscopy refers to the procedure of inserting a medical device into the body’s natural orifices (nose, mouth and rectum) to enable a physician to examine a person’s organs and cavities. The device consists of a thin, flexible tube with an attached light source and a small video camera.
With remarkable advances in technology in the recent years, endoscopy has become an integral part of the diagnosis and treatment of various GI conditions. A number of minimally invasive endoscopic treatments are now available for various GI diseases and tumors for which traditional surgery used to be the only option. Because sophisticated technology and advanced training are now available to conclusively diagnose and treat many of these complex GI conditions, patients are often referred to an advanced endoscopy center by their gastroenterologist. Our team of highly skilled interventional gastroenterologists offer a complete array of diagnostic and therapeutic options for the entire spectrum of GI diseases.
A Comprehensive, Multidisciplinary Approach
The Interventional Endoscopy Center offers our patients various minimally invasive treatment options for many complex disorders including diseases of the bile duct and pancreas, pre-malignant and malignant tumors of the GI tract and diseases of abnormal GI motility. A dedicated staff is committed to ensuring a seamless experience to our patients with timely communication with them and their referring physicians. Our highly skilled, highly trained Interventional Endoscopy team collaborates with other key specialists, as needed, such as expert surgeons, interventional radiologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and radiation oncologists to deliver thoughtful, individualized, state-of-the-art care to achieve the best possible results.
