Summa Health Endoscopy Center

Summa Health Endoscopy Center

Endoscopy is a procedure that allows physicians to examine the digestive tract through an endoscope, a device that uses fiber optics and a powerful lens system. The minimally invasive procedure can often be done on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to go home or return to work within a short period.

Summa Health System is pleased to announce this procedure is available at our NEW advanced endoscopy suite located at:

Summa Health Endoscopy Center
Summa Health Richard M. and Yvonne Hamlin Pavilion
Summa Health System – Akron Campus
95 Arch Street, Ste. G55
Akron, Ohio

Hours of operation: Mon-Fri, 7:30 a.m.-3:00 pm.

The suite offers patients:

  • Advanced technology, including all new endoscopy equipment
  • Easy access in/out of the facility
  • Dedicated surface or valet parking near the Hamlin pavilion entrance
  • Bedside visitation by family members pre- and post-procedure (no children under 12 years of age)

An endoscopy is often used to diagnose various digestive conditions, and may also be used for repair and treatment, as well as biopsies.

Your Summa gastroenterologist may recommend an endoscopy for any of the following:

  • Investigation of symptoms in the digestive system including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty swallowing and gastrointestinal bleeding.
  • Confirmation of a diagnosis, most commonly by performing a biopsy to check for conditions such as anemia, bleeding, inflammation, cancers of the digestive system.
  • Treatments, such as cauterization of a bleeding vessel, widening a narrow esophagus, clipping off a polyp or removing a foreign object.
