Broward’s highly skilled physicians, nurses, and technologists are here to guide you through  and keep you as comfortable as possible.

 

Treatments and Procedures for Digestive Conditions

  • Incisionless surgery for heartburn/GERD:
    We perform transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) using the EsophyX, a surgical device that effectively eliminates 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 normal cells to regrow within three to four weeks.
  • Capsule endoscopy:
    For this procedure, patients swallow a vitamin-sized capsule that holds a tiny wireless camera. The camera takes thousands of pictures and transmits them to a recorder so a physician can evaluate conditions and recommend treatments.
  • Small bowel enteroscopy:
    We use this procedure to examine gastrointestinal bleeding, small bowel tumors, polyps, or other small bowel diseases. After examining the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and portions of the small intestine, the physician may remove any abnormal tissue or growths for examination or biopsy.
  • HALO procedure/Barrett’s esophagus ablation:
    The HALO ablation technology is designed specifically to remove diseased esophageal tissue and allow new, healthy tissue to return. This procedure can also remove precancerous lesions from the esophagus.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP):
    ERCP looks for diseases of the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas. During the test, physicians can take biopsies, remove a gallstone in the common bile duct, and open a narrowed bile duct using a stent.

 

 

Advanced, Non-invasive Technology

Broward County's first CyberKnife®, in use at Broward Health North, is a pain-free, precise method to treat tumors anywhere in the body – even those once considered inoperable. This non-invasive alternative to conventional surgery works with sub-millimeter accuracy and unsurpassed flexibility to track tumors in the brain, spine, lungs, liver, pancreas, and prostate. It delivers radiation beams with a superior range of positions to access tumors from any direction and allows patients to resume normal lives with minimal recovery time and risk.
