We offer a full range of gastrointestinal procedures in our state-of-the-art GI endoscopic units located across the various centers within Prisma Health including the Memorial Medical Offices building, Greenville Memorial Hospital and Hillcrest Memorial Hospital.

During the course of their training, our GI fellows develop expertise in preforming various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, dilatation, hemostasis, esophageal manometry, pH impedance testing, polypectomy, small bowel endoscopy including video capsule endoscopy , PEG insertion, as well as exposure to endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
