Endoscopy is a procedure that enables your doctor to see inside your body. It uses an instrument called an endoscope, or scope for short. Scopes have a tiny camera attached to a long, thin tube. The doctor moves it through a body passageway or opening to see inside an organ. Sometimes scopes are used for surgery, such as for removing polyps from the colon.
NOTE: Our Endoscopy Department has moved. If your procedure is at the hospital, please check in at Surgery Admitting in the hospital's main lobby. If your procedure is at the Endoscopy Department (across the street from the hospital at 17820 Talbot Road S.) please park in the adjacent lot.
Please print or bring a digital copy of this Procedure Check-in Flyer with Campus Maps with you on the day of your procedure. The flyer includes parking instructions.
