The physicians of Carnegie Hill Endoscopy represent some of the best in their field. They are private practicing doctors who aspire to practice medicine in the safety of well-trained staff that enhances the patient care experience. The quality of our care is paramount to them. They have built a state of the art endoscopy center that is recognized as the quintessential center of our area. We believe that great care builds great practices.
During colonoscopy, a flexible instrument is inserted into the rectum and is advanced throughout the colon. The patient is lying on their left side during the exam. The instrument has a video camera built into its tip and the image of the lining of the colon is projected to a television screen.
During endoscopy, a flexible instrument is passed over the tongue into the esophagus and is advanced through the stomach into the first part of the small intestine, called the duodenum. The patient is lying on their left side during the exam.
Carnegie Hill Endoscopy is one of the first endoscopy centers in New York City to offer Full Spectrum Endoscopy to patients. This advanced scope technology actually expands our Gastroenterologist’s field of view during endoscopic procedures – like colon cancer screenings (colonoscopy) and upper GI endoscopy (EGD).
The HET™ bipolar system is a proprietary technology that allows for the gentle, simple, and effective treatment of all symptomatic grades I and II hemorrhoids in a single procedure.
“Colonoscopy saves lives. The fact remains, however, that traditional, forward-viewing (TFV) colonoscopes miss many pre-cancerous polyps. Full Spectrum Endoscopy® (Fuse®) is revolutionizing colonoscopy by providing a full 330° view of the colon, almost double the view of traditional, forward-viewing colonoscopes. A study recently published in The Lancet Oncology revealed that Fuse found 76% more polyps than traditional, forward-viewing colonoscopes.”
