Welcome to Baylor Scott & White Ambulatory Endoscopy Center

 
 

Baylor Scott & White Ambulatory Endoscopy Center is a surgery center licensed by the State of Texas that focuses on endoscopy procedures only.
We are not a physician practice or an outpatient hospital. This facility is owned in part by physicians who practice here. We encourage you to ask your practitioner any questions you may have about his or her ownership interest in this facility.
Our center is fully equipped with advanced video colonoscopes and gastroscopes to make your procedure as safe and comfortable as possible.

Why Choose Us?

When patients choose to use an outpatient surgery center, also called an ambulatory surgery center (ASC), most find that the process is much more convenient, as well as more personal. Our center offers a relaxed environment with medical staff focused on offering individualized patient care. Our specialized staff helps each patient's visit go as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Ease of Use

Since our center focuses on a limited number of procedures, most patients find that we are much easier to navigate than a typical hospital environment. We know exactly how many patients we will serve each day and can, therefore, staff appropriately to ensure very personal care. Our priority in the center is you and your procedure.

Skilled Physicians and Staff

Our staff specializes in outpatient endoscopy care and has many years of experience. Our physicians and nurses are specialists in your specific outpatient procedures. They keep themselves educated about current developments in GI procedures through continuous education and regular attendance at workshops and seminars.

Accreditation

We are accredited by Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. BSW Ambulatory Endoscopy Center is also accredited by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), a professional organization dedicated to advancing patient care and digestive health by promoting excellence in gastrointestinal endoscopy. ​

What to Expect

All patients, except Liver biopsy patients, can expect to be at the facility for approximately two to three hours. This is from the time you walk in the door to the time you are discharged. If you are sedated, you might want your driver to stay with you. The physician will talk with you after the procedure. If you are sedated, you might not remember speaking with the physician.

You will be sent home with discharge paperwork. Liver biopsy patients can expect to be at the facility approximately five to six hours from the time they walk in the door to the time they are discharged.

Procedure-Specific Information​

  • All patients that receive sedation must have someone drive them home. There are no exceptions. Taxis and rideshare vehicles are unacceptable.
  • Your physician will talk with you prior to your procedure, explain all risks involved with the procedure and will answer any questions you have regarding the procedure.
  • A nurse will call you the day before your procedure to obtain a health history, explain your rights and responsibilities, and to answer any questions you may have.
  • Please leave all jewelry at home. We will ask you to remove all jewelry prior to the procedure. Any jewelry that cannot be removed, we will have you sign a waiver stating that you are aware of the possible risks involved.

Financial Assistance

At Baylor Scott & White Health, we want to be a resource for you and your family. Our team of financial counselors is here to help. We encourage you to speak to a member of our team at any time – before, during or after care is received.

Accepted Insurance

Please bring a copy of your driver's license and insurance information. We will file insurance for you, but we ask that you cover the portion that insurance will not cover at the time of your visit. Most insurance plans have a co-payment, co-insurance and/or deductible. You are responsible for these payments.

We will prepare an estimate of this cost and notify you a few days prior to your procedure. This payment is due at the time of service, and all charges incurred are for the facility. You will receive a separate bill from the physician and from pathology if any biopsies are taken. If you are unable to pay on the date of the procedure, the appointment will be rescheduled.

For your convenience, we will accept a personal check and all major credit cards.​​

  • Colonoscopy
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD)
  • Liver Biopsy

Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the entire large intestine (colon), using a lighted, flexible colonoscope.  To be certain you are comfortable and relaxed, you will be sedated through an IV.  In fact, most patients are asleep during the entire process and remember little to nothing about it.

 

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD)

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a procedure in which a flexible lighted tube is passed slowing in your mouth into the esophagus, stomach and first part of your duodenum (small intestine) for direct examination.  

 

Liver Biopsy

In a liver biopsy, the physician examines a small piece of tissue from your liver for signs of damage or disease.
