St. Peter's Surgery and Endoscopy Center is a joint venture of Albany Gastroenterology Associates,
PLLC and St. Peter's Hospital. Located at 1375 Washington Avenue, Suite 201, the center provides outpatient procedures in a non hospital setting including colonoscopy, to examine the large intestine and rectum for pre-cancerous polyps and other pathology, and upper endoscopy, to evaluate the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum for gastrointestinal tract conditions of various kinds including ulcer disease. Several other ancillary procedures are also performed including dilation of esophageal strictures, which often cause swallowing problems.
The center also offers "same day prep" colonoscopies. Patients can begin their prep in the morning, then have their colonoscopy in the afternoon and return home before evening.
Direct access endoscopy (colonoscopy and esophagogastroduodenoscopy-EGD) is also offered as a service for patients who have had colonoscopy and endoscopy in the past and for the individual patient who does not wish or need to see a gastroenterologist prior to his/her procedure. Standard endoscopic procedures will be scheduled quickly and efficiently for stable adult patients without insulin dependent diabetes, unstable cardiac, pulmonary or kidney disease and patients without the need for intravenous antibiotics prior to a procedure.
The center has three endoscopy procedure rooms, pre and post procedure patient areas and a comfortable waiting room for family and friends.
The endoscopy center provides flexible scheduling starting at 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Most major insurance
policies are accepted. For more information please call 518-533-3420.
