UC Davis Health offers new procedures thanks to state-of-the-art endoscopy suite

“This new suite is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to provide the cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures that UC Davis Health is known for,” said Antonio Mendoza-Ladd, medical director of endoscopy for gastroenterology. “It is the ideal setting for us to provide the expertise of interventional endoscopy to patients in Sacramento and the region so that they don't have to drive long distances to get these procedures.”

The endoscopy suite features state-of-the-art technology to assist with endoscopy procedures. Some of the advanced technology includes:

  • Advanced integrated fluoroscopy suites, which enables physicians to look at many body systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems
  • 3-D mobile C-arm system, which can quickly generate transverse, sagittal and coronal planes during surgery Tomographic and 3D stereoscopic images
  • EndoFlip, a technology that simultaneously measures the area across the inside of a gastrointestinal organ and the pressure inside that organ
  • Full thickness resection device, an endoscopic device approved for the resection of colorectal lesions
  • Cellvizio System, which shows precisely where to target biopsies, examine cells from inside a nodule, discover previously undetected lesions or see the immediate impact of a drug on cells
