When visiting our GI Lab, a patient should expect to be with us for approximately two to three hours,
which includes both the procedure and recovery time. The patient must be kept in recovery and monitored
until the nurse feels he reaches an acceptable alertness score and is ready for discharge.
The GI Lab is located on Level M of the Diagnostic and Treatment Center.
Deals with problems of the digestive system from the esophagus to the colon,
including organs involved in digestion-the liver, pancreas and gallbladder.
