Endoscopy Center

Roswell Park offers the latest minimally invasive approaches for diagnosis and treatment of malignant and benign gastrointestinal and pulmonary conditions.

RPCI’s new multipurpose center brings together Advanced Endoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology services into one state-of-the-art facility where more than 90 percent of procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Our brand new state-of-the-art facility features five treatment suites specially equipped with latest technologies for both pulmonary and endoscopy procedures.
