Our expert medical professionals hold extensive training in advanced endoscopy—procedures that use slender, flexible tubes and tiny cameras to deliver detailed views inside the body. You’re assured of the best possible outcomes because our experienced doctors perform hundreds of endoscopic procedures each year.

Advanced technology and research

UCHealth stands among the nation’s top programs for digestive-related issues, which means you benefit from our deep involvement in clinical research combined with our advanced endoscopic technology.

We use a special new device developed by our experts at UCHealth—the SpyGlass™ Direct Visualization System—to examine the bile ducts and pancreas. SpyGlass delivers more detailed images than traditional ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography), which assures you receive accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Our integrated approach to care enables precise detection, diagnosis, treatment, and management of your digestive system condition. In the UCHealth system, you have access to Colorado’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center, one of only 45 in the country. We participate in a broad spectrum of national clinical trials, so you always have access to the latest treatment options.
