Piedmont Augusta Outpatient Surgical Services

Not all surgical procedures require hospitalization. Piedmont Augusta offers two outpatient centers for your outpatient surgical needs. Our main surgical services department is located on the second floor of the main hospital at 1350 Walton Way, Augusta, GA 30901. Our phone number is 706-774-5647.


Endoscopy Suite

Piedmont Augusta has seven endoscopy procedure rooms and 12 pre- and post-procedure bays designed to maximize patient privacy, comfort and dignity while providing state-of-the-art medical technology to assist in procedures. Specialized nurses remain at the bedside to assist with the procedure and provide care for the patient.

Endoscopy means viewing with the aid of a scope. An endoscope is a flexible device in which modern fiber-optic technology enables the physician to look inside the gastrointestinal tract or lungs without making an incision. The device can take color photographs to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of various disorders of the digestive and pulmonary systems. Patients receive sedation during the procedure, which takes 15–60 minutes. Piedmont Augusta also offers:

  • Pillcam small bowel - The patient swallows a vitamin-sized camera that takes pictures to aid the physician in diagnosing diseases of the small bowel.
  • Esophageal manometry - The Manoscan 360 assists in diagnosing motor function problems from the pharynx to the stomach.

The Endoscopy Suite is located on the second floor of the main hospital at 1350 Walton Way,
Augusta, GA 30901. Our phone number is 706-774-2131.
