Broward Health Imperial Point’s Center for Digestive Health provides care for the following conditions:

Barrett’s Esophagus

GERD/Heartburn

Radiation Proctitis

Procedures performed at the Center for Digestive Health include:

TIF Incisionless Surgery for Heartburn/GERD:

Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) is preformed with the EsophyX surgical device that results in the effective elimination of GERD symptoms, leaves no visible scarring and allows patients to recover quickly.

Barrx Esophagus Ablation:

The Barrx Esophagus Ablation is an incisionless, proactive outpatient procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes. Using the advanced BARRX HALO System technology, we remove the diseased layer of cells from the esophagus without injury to underlying healthy tissue. Patients can expect a re-growth of their normal cells within three to four weeks.

Capsule Endoscopy:

Capsule Endoscopy is a procedure using a wireless camera that sits inside of a vitamin-sized capsule that you swallow. The camera takes thousands of pictures that are transmitted to a recorder to be reviewed by the physician. 

Small Bowel Enteroscopy:

A small bowel enteroscopy is a procedure used to examine gastrointestinal bleeding, small bowel tumors, polyps, or other small bowel diseases. An endoscope is used to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach and portions of the small intestine (small bowel). If growths or other abnormalities are found during the test, the physician may remove the abnormal tissue for further examination or biopsy.

Halo Procedure/Barrett’s Esophagus Ablation:

The HALO ablation technology is designed specifically to remove the diseased tissue of the patient's esophagus and allow new, healthy tissue to re-grow. More importantly, this procedure can remove precancerous lesions from the esophagus and alleviate the patient’s wait-time and anxiety that often accompany this diagnosis.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography (ERCP):

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography is a diagnostic procedure done to examine for diseases of the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas. ERCP can treat certain problems during the test such as allowing the physician to take a sample of tissue (biopsy) from an abnormal growth, remove a gallstone in the common bile duct, and open a narrowed bile duct using a stent.

The Latest Technology

Broward County's first CyberKnife®, in use at Broward Health North, is designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body, pain-free. A non-invasive alternative to conventional surgery, the CyberKnife® works with sub-millimeter accuracy and unsurpassed flexibility tracking tumors in the brain, spine, lungs, liver, pancreas and prostate. It delivers radiation beams with a superior range of positions allowing access to a tumor from any direction.

Because of its precision and continuous imaging, the CyberKnife® ensures target accuracy without manually repositioning patients – treating what were once considered "inoperable" tumors. This non-invasive, pain-free technology allows patients to resume normal lives with minimal recovery time and risk.
