Best time to reach you

An Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EDG, is a short procedure that allows our team to examine your esophagus, stomach and duodenum. It takes less than an hour and you can go home the same day.

A Bravo pH Test may be needed if you’re experiencing heartburn, chest pain, coughing and more. The test measures the acidity of your esophagus, helping diagnose acid reflux disease.

A specialty of St. Joseph Hospital, the video capsule endoscopy involves the patient swallowing a pill-sized camera that records images of the digestive tract. It’s used to find the cause of intestinal bleeding, examine the esophagus and screen for diseases, including cancer.
