Our Practice | Advancements in GI

Infusion Therapy

We offer Remicade infusion therapy for those patients who suffer from active Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis disease and may not respond to conventional therapies. Infusions are given in the comfort and convenience of our infusion suite and are monitored by our nurse practitioner. Our suite is also open to dermatology patients suffering from plaque psoriasis.

Genetic Colon Clinic

We offer testing for those patients thought to be at increased risk for hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes. This testing would be offered to patients with a family history of colorectal cancer and other cancers that would identify them as being at a higher risk for hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes. An in depth consultation and lab analysis would be provided.

PillCam Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy with the PillCam SB video capsule enables your doctor to examine your entire small intestine. Your doctor will have you ingest a video capsule that has its own camera and light source. You can move freely during the exam, which lasts about eight hours. While the video capsule travels through your body, it sends images to a data recorder you will wear close to your waist. Afterwards, your doctor will view the images on a video monitor.
