Iron County Medical Center Gastroenterology (GI) Services:

The following surgeries are performed at Iron County Medical Center:

Colonoscopy: an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum. A tiny video camera at the tip of the tube allows the doctor to view the inside of the entire colon.

EGD: Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is an endoscopic procedure that allows your doctor to examine your esophagus, stomach and duodenum (part of your small intestine). EGD is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home that same day. It takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to perform.

Dr. Ramirez treats patients with Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Crohn’s Disease, Colitis, Barret’s Esophagus, and Polyps.
