Small Bowel Capsule

What is capsule endoscopy? Endoscopy means “seeing inside” in Latin. The procedure allows your doctor to see the inner surfaces of your gastrointestinal tract. What makes capsule endoscopy, sometimes called a pill-cam, different from conventional tube endoscopy is the kind of camera involved. With capsule endoscopy, you swallow a tiny camera encased in a clear, smooth shell; the camera takes pictures of your digestive system as it moves down your esophagus, into your stomach and through your small intestine. As the pill-sized camera moves through your digestive system, it transmits thousands of images to a recording device you wear around your waist or neck.  At Manhattan Gastroenterology, we offer service based on the indication and will be glad to speak with you about its uses in detail. For more information about Manhattan Gastroenterology practice or to schedule an appointment, please contact our Union Square office at (212) 378-9983 or our Manhattan’s Upper East Side office at (212) 427-8761.
