Gastrointestinal Program

Carolinas HealthCare System Digestive Health offers offer a full range of services to detect, diagnose and treat disorders of the digestive system.

We perform the following procedures:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Upper endoscopy
Colon Cancer Screenings

Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy use a thin flexible tube with a camera at the end to look at the colon. While a colonoscopy examines the entire colon, a sigmoidoscopy looks at just part of the colon. Both are used to screen for colon cancer. Sometimes the screening reveals a mass of tissue called a polyp and some polyps can develop into cancer. Most polyps can be removed during a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy.

Colonoscopy and Sigmoidoscopy may be used for the following reasons:
  • Anemia (usually when no other cause has been found)
  • Blood in the stool or black, tarry stools
  • Symptoms such as abdominal pain, changes in bowel movements or weight loss
  • Inflammatory bowel disease such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease
  • Follow-up of a previous finding, such as polyps or colon cancer

An upper endoscopy examines the lining of the esophagus, stomach and upper intestine with a small camera inserted down the throat.

Your doctor may order an upper endoscopy if you have any of the following conditions or symptoms:
  • Abdominal pain
  • Peptic ulcer disease
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Black or tarry stools
  • Chronic liver disease or cirrhosis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Feeling full sooner than normal or after
    eating less than usual
  • Gastroparesis
  • Heartburn
  • Narrowing or tumors of the esophagus
  • Swallowing difficulties or pain with swallowing
  • Unexplained anemia
