GastroArkansas offers two certified outpatient ambulatory surgery centers. This means that you will not require hospitalization or overnight stay for your procedure. Although the name implies surgery, no incisions are required to examine the inner lining of your intestines with endoscopy. The flexible instruments are small diameter tubes which can be passed through the mouth or rectum and advanced through the digestive tract for inspection. Our facility is regularly inspected and licensed by the Arkansas Department of Health and certified by Medicare.
