Gastrointestinal surgery

Partnering with Johnston-Willis Hospital, we offer a colon and rectal surgery program that provides the best and most comprehensive services for preventing, detecting and treating disorders of the intestines, colon, rectum and anus.


At Chippenham, we have dedicated endoscopy suites, which are separate from our traditional operating rooms. We perform procedures, such as bronchial thermoplasty, cancer staging and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS).

Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor. The endoscope can be inserted orally or rectally, depending on if the doctor needs to perform an upper or lower GI endoscopy.

Your comfort and safety are our main priorities. Please be assured that when you choose Chippenham for your endoscopy procedure, you’ve chosen the hospital with the experience, care and compassion you’re looking for. Our goal is to get you back on your feet and on the road to recovery.
