Endoscopy

Performing the region’s most advanced endoscopic procedures, the endoscopy unit at West Chester Hospital has been recognized by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE). We were one of only 32 units in the country, and one of only two in Ohio, to receive this recognition in 2010. In total, only 166 endoscopy units nationally have been recognized.

We use state-of-the-art technology to perform our endoscopic procedures with endoscopes that are smaller, brighter and more easily maneuvered, and produce clearer, sharper images. Most of our procedures can be done inserting small instruments into the scopes.
