Dr. Katz may perform a CAPSULE ENDOSCOPY in order to evaluate your small bowel, an area that cannot be reached by colonoscope nor endoscope.
The procedure consists of:
- Swallowing a vitamin-sized capsule with a camera inside it.
- Retrieving the Capsule using a special retrieval system after it is passed in the stool.
- Bringing the Capsule back to the Highland Park office during business hours.
The images are then downloaded from the Capsule for Dr. Katz to evaluate.
