Capsule Endoscopy Procedure in Dallas, TX
Capsule Endoscopy is a procedure that uses a small PillCam to visualize the lining of the small intestine. The small intestine, which is located between your stomach and large intestine, is primarily responsible for digesting food and is the source of many of these unexplained symptoms. The PillCam video capsule allows Dr. James Hakert to see your entire small intestine – an organ you could never fully see before this capsule was developed. It also helps Dr. Hakert determine the cause of many unresolved symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, bleeding or anemia.

BARRX Procedure in Dallas, TX
The BARRX procedure or previously known as the HALO procedure is used to treat Barrett’s Esophagus or Barrett’s Disease, which is a change that occurs in the cellular lining of the esophagus. The esophagus is the swallowing tube that carries foods and liquids from the mouth to the stomach. The lining of the esophagus should be a whitish color. However, if reflux is occurring from the stomach then the lining can turn an abnormal dark pink color by the gastro-esophageal junction (usually less than 2.5 inches in length). If the discolored lining area contains mucus-producing cells, called goblet cells, then your gastroenterologist will most likely make a diagnosis of Barrett’s Disease in Dallas, TX.
