About the Endoscopy Lab
The state-of-the-art Endoscopy Lab at Texas Health Rockwall provides advanced treatment and diagnostic options for gastrointestinal and pulmonary procedures. Anesthesia services are scheduled with all endoscopy procedures to provide comfort and positive outcomes for our patients.

We offer the newest model endoscopes to view a patient’s gastrointestinal tract by minimally invasive means. All diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for gastrointestinal disorders of the esophagus, colon, stomach, pancreas, liver, gall bladder, and small intestine are performed by Certified Gastroenterology Specialists and Anesthesiologists along with Registered Nurses who are members of the Society for Gastroenterology Nurses Association (SGNA).

Pulmonary diagnostic procedures are also conducted in an Endoscopy Lab. Certified Pulmonary Disease specialists will perform these procedures to evaluate diseases and conditions of the chest or complicated chest infections.

To find a Gastroenterologist or Pulmonologist please check our Find a Physician link on this page.
Gastroscopy
This procedure examines the upper portion of the GI tract. A thin tube (gastroscope) will be inserted in your mouth to examine the upper portion of your gastrointestinal tract. Patients may be sedated during this procedure.
Colonoscopy
This procedure examines the lower portion of your gastrointestinal tract, removal of polyps (polypectomy) may be done during a colonoscopy. Because colon cancer develops from the growth of polyps, removal of polyps during a colonoscopy can prevent colon cancer from occurring. For the comfort of the patient, during a colonoscopy the patient is placed under general anesthesia while being monitored by a certified Anesthesiologist.

For more information on colon cancer and screening methods please visit http://www.texashealthrockwall.com/colon-cancer-awareness.html.
Flexible Sigmoidoscopy
This procedure is performed for screening of the lower portion of the rectum and colon. Patients will be placed under anesthesia during this procedure just as with a colonoscopy.
ERCP
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography- A procedure to diagnose and treat gallstones through an endoscope using X-rays to treat gallstones in a non-invasive manner.
Bronchoscopy
This procedure visualizes the inside of the airways for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. A bronchoscope is inserted into the airways, usually through the nose or mouth. This allows the Pulmonologist to examine the patient's airways for abnormalities such as foreign bodies, bleeding, tumors, or inflammation. Specimens may be taken from inside the lungs and sent to pathology for diagnostic testing.
Anesthesia
Texas Health Rockwall is proud to be one of the few hospitals in the area that provides anesthesia services by board certified medical doctors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At Texas Health Rockwall, patient safety and comfort come first for the care you want, quality you need and the service you deserve.
