We understand that undergoing medical procedures can be stressful. However, each GI procedure performed by Dr. Lyles is critical to the diagnostic process of determining the causes or symptoms. Also, our practice performs health maintenance screenings like colon cancer with colonoscopy. If you are unsure of when you need to begin colon cancer screening, please discuss with your primary doctor or call our office.

Most of the stress regarding procedures, I have found, comes from not knowing what to expect during your procedure. As a way of helping to reduce this stress we have composed separate procedural pages to help you better understand the procedure you are having, why it is important and what to expect.

GI Procedures

In order to determine the underlying causes of some symptoms, Dr. Lyles uses procedures like colonoscopy and upper endoscopy (EGD) to evaluate and collect information on a portion of your digestive system. The results of each procedure will help in determining the best treatment plan based on a patient’s condition.
