“Nurses were very kind. Excellent service – everything at the Meadowlands Hospital was perfect. Many thanks.”
— Mirna C., Meadowlands Hospital Ambulatory Services Patient, November 2017
“The morning of my surgery, we were properly greeted and waited on – we were made very comfortable. My son commented on how clean the hospital was…I would like to take this time to commend, bless and praise the anesthesiologist Shanon Kleinman who inserted my line. I am petrified of needles – only once in my life did I have a pleasant IV experience now I have a second positive experience! Dr. Kleinman had the most peaceful disposition and manner about him! His bedside manner and expertise are beyond compare! I know that Dr. Vagmin Vora and the staff were doing their jobs but we were made to feel as if we were special! Everybody made my surgery personal! I am very, very pleased with the care and attention I received during my stay at the Meadowlands Hospital – the staff over extended themselves in all ways. They thought of everything and made sure we did too!”

“I was in your hospital two times and both visits were very good experiences!”
— Ann S., Meadowlands Hospital HCAHPS/3West Patient, October 2017
Endoscopy procedures help doctors detect and screen for colon cancer, diagnose stomach and gastrointestinal problems, find and remove polyps and tumors, and treat ulcers and other diseases and disorders. Endoscopy is the visual examination of interior structures of the body with an endoscope, a thin, flexible viewing instrument. It allows doctors to look for inflammation, tumors, infection, and bleeding – revealing problems that do not show up on X-ray tests and often eliminating the need for exploratory surgery. Types of endoscopic procedures include colonoscopy (colon area), gastroscopy (stomach area), and bronchoscopy (lung area). When necessary, the doctors may also use a variety of other methods available at the hospital, including X-ray, ultrasound, CAT scan, and MRI. These methods assist them in diagnosing or treating all other conditions.
Patients having endoscopy procedures are often sedated. MHMC anesthesia team assists with the procedures. Our patients receive their examinations in comfort with caring, highly specialized nurses and technicians who assist the physicians.
Endoscopy and colonoscopy are relatively painless examinations of the lining of the digestive tract using fiber-optic instruments, which also permit biopsies and polyp removal.
Here at the Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center (MHMC) we are all about providing privacy and comfort for patients. Our cutting-edge technology and equipment, including the latest in infection control systems, help the gastroenterologists and pulmonologists perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures accurately and efficiently.
