Cincinnati GI provides treatment for conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. From screenings to surgical care, we treat our patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Bravo pH and Impedance pH Studies

Esophageal pH monitoring tests are performed to determine if a patient is experiencing abnormal acid reflux, and to determine the appropriate treatment.

Capsule Endoscopy

Often recommended to view the small intestine, a capsule containing a tiny wireless camera takes thousands of photos of the GI tract.

Colonoscopy

As both a preventative measure and disease-detecting procedure, a colonoscopy gauges the health of the large intestine, or colon.

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection

Performed to treat pre- and early-stage cancers, an EMR is a minimally invasive procedure that removes abnormal tissue, or lesions, from the digestive tract.

Endoscopic Ultrasound

An endoscopic ultrasound is performed to provide a highly specialized view and imaging of the gastrointestinal tract.

ERCP

An ERCP can treat bile stones and other conditions in the pancreas and bile ducts. It combines an upper endoscopy with X-rays.

Esophageal Dilation

If the esophagus becomes narrow in parts, often due to GERD, a dilation procedure will help stretch it back to a comfortable width.

Esophageal Manometry

An esophageal manometry is performed to check the strength of the esophageal-stomach valve, and examine the pressures and coordination of the esophageal muscles.

FibroScan

A FibroScan is an enhanced ultrasound device that can detect signs of liver disease, including fibrosis and fat on the liver.

Gastrostomy Tube Placement

A G-tube is inserted through the skin, directly into the stomach, as a treatment for patients who have difficulty taking food by the mouth.

Hemorrhoid Banding

Hemorrhoid banding is a common treatment for internal hemorrhoids. It places rubber bands or rings around the hemorrhoid(s), thus cutting off blood supply.

IV Infusion

An IV infusion is delivered when the patient has difficulty swallowing or cannot consume food or water by mouth.

Liver Biopsy

By taking a small sample of liver tissue and examining it under a microscope, a medical team can determine the damage to the organ.

Radiofrequency Ablation of Barrett’s

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a treatment for Barrett’s esophagus that uses high-energy radio waves to burn and destroy abnormal cells.

Sigmoidoscopy

During a sigmoidoscopy, the doctor uses a thin, flexible tube equipped with a camera to examine the sigmoid, which is part of the colon.

Small Bowel Enteroscopy

If bleeding, inflammation, or other conditions occur in the small intestine, the doctor may use an enteroscope to access the area.

Upper Endoscopy

Performed to detect inflammation and other complications, an upper endoscopy gives the gastroenterologist a live view of the lining of the upper GI tract.

Variceal Banding

Variceal banding is a technique that stops the varices from bleeding, by placing flexible bands around the vein(s) to cut off blood supply.
