Esophagus and Upper GI Disease Care at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?
You receive services from digestive health doctors (gastroenterologists) specializing in esophagus and upper GI diseases. We detect and treat issues in earlier stages lowering the risk of complications. These capabilities help us care for some of the region’s most complex cases. Highlights of our program include:
Minimally invasive procedures
The team includes doctors who completed additional training through fellowships in advanced endoscopy. This minimally invasive technique uses long thin tubes (endoscopes) to access treatment areas. Sophisticated instruments at the tip enable us to carry out many procedures that once required surgery.
We were among the first programs in New York’s Hudson Valley and Western Connecticut offering spray cryotherapy for esophageal cancer. Cryotherapy uses cold gas to shrink cancerous growths enabling us to remove them with less disruption to nearby tissue.
