Tests and Procedures
The Owensboro Health GI Labs are located in the main hospital.
GI Tests and procedures include:
• Bravo or pH testing for acid reflux
• ECRP—a combination of endoscopy and X-ray
Endoscopy is a diagnostic tool that is excellent for use in the Gastrointestinal tract. It provides your doctor with a visual inspection and photography for better diagnosis. Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure with a fast patient recovery time.
Laparoscopic surgery is a modern and progressive surgical technique. It’s a less invasive form of surgery that can be used even for complex procedures. The benefits to our patients are smaller scars, less post-operative pain and a faster recovery time to return to your normal activities.
