MIDWOOD — The east wing of the main floor of Beth Israel Brooklyn is the proud new home of a state-of-the-art Endoscopy Suite, an in-hospital outpatient facility for the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders.

“The new Endoscopy Suite offers many advantages, including a more convenient and easily accessible location, greater patient comfort and privacy, and the ability to treat higher level and difficult cases,” said Robin Baradarian, M.D., chief of Gastroenterology and director of Interventional Gastroenterology, Beth Israel Brooklyn.

“We offer colonoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound and ERCP, an advanced radiology-assisted endoscopic procedure used in treating obstruction and narrowing of the bile and pancreatic ducts,” added Baradarian, who will be working with an expert team of gastroenterologists, endoscopists, anesthesiologists, radiologists and nurses.

At a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Feb. 24, Beth Israel President Harris M. Nagler and VP for Administration Rhona Hetsrony welcomed state Assembly Members  Steven Cymbrowitz, Alan Maisel and Helene Weinstein, along with community members, administrators and staff.  

The enlarged Endoscopy Suite will allow for a greater number of patients to be diagnosed and treated, and enable a smoother flow of cases.

Hetsrony recognized the efforts of Project Manager Trevor Knight and the team of architects and designers who maximized the space once occupied by the old emergency department.
