Gastroenterology

Providing exceptionally safe, high-quality, convenient and patient-centered care describes the Finger Lakes Surgery Center (FLSC). To meet the growing need for outpatient procedures while defining a new standard of excellence, Finger Lakes Health operates the most advanced same-day surgery center in the region.

This 16,400 square foot medical facility was designed from the ground-up to encompass three key elements in the delivery of excellence in health care: dedication to patient-focused care and a healing environment, integration of innovative design and cutting-edge technology, and collaboration between physicians and other caregivers to achieve optimal clinical quality. Procedures at FLSC include minimally invasive surgical and therapeutic procedures; treating patients from infancy to elder adults. The average length of stay is 3-4 hours or less from start to finish. All types of anesthesia are available with an anesthesiologist on site from the beginning of the procedure until the patient is discharged.  Currently the FLSC offers the following gastroenterology procedures:

• Colonoscopy, Upper endoscopy, esophageal pH testing, sigmoidoscopy and infusion therapy to treat Crohn’s disease.
• These procedures can be done with various levels of sedation including no sedation, conscious sedation and Monitored Anesthesia Care if determined by your physician.

The FLSC offers multiple rooms with efficient services in gastroenterology.  Our highly trained professional staff makes these personal procedures convenient and as comfortable as possible in a safe environment.  From the moment patients enter the FLSC, the focus is entirely on them. The patient's family is encouraged to stay with them until they enter the surgical and procedure rooms.  We make every effort to you informed of the patient's progress. The patient always feels connected with our highly skilled professionals. . From their pre-operative room, the patient can observe the staff and get a feel for the flow of work.  At the end of the experience, there is a private exit located close to the parking lot where the patient can be picked up by their loved one under an overhand to protect the patient from the elements.
