UAB Medical West Endoscopy Lab
At Medical West’s Gastrointestinal (GI) Lab, patients can receive a full range of screening and diagnostic procedures. We perform traditional gastrointestinal procedures, such as colonoscopies, as well as advanced endoscopy treatments. The Endoscopy lab at Medical West is located on the second floor of the Professional Office Building.
GI Lab Renovation
The Medical West GI Lab recently underwent a makeover. Renovations included pre/post operative rooms, procedure rooms, the waiting area, nurses station and more! Now with 11 pre/post operative rooms and four procedure rooms, our facility can accommodate a greater number of patients!
GI Lab Head Nurse Sheena Walker said, "We have received so many compliments from both patients and visitors about how great everything looks! Our goal is to increase patient flow, while maintaining the same dedicated and compassionate quality of care that we give to our patients, as they are our number one priority.”
Most notably, the renovation included updates to our equipment. All Medical West Endoscopy procedures are now performed with the use of new, state-of-the-art technology. This allows our physicians to establish an accurate patient diagnosis, and to perform under the best conditions.
GI Lab nurse Gwen Parker said, "The new space has given us more enthusiasm as we help our clients come through our lab. We are organizing our staff to assist patients' progress through the lab easier and faster.”
