Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy Center (ATEC)
The Borland-Groover Clinic has physicians dedicated to advanced therapeutic endoscopy. These are minimally invasive procedures, which offer the patient options other than traditional surgery in dealing with clinical dilemmas. Included with these specialized procedures are ERCP with sphincter of Oddi manometry. This is a specialized procedure in which the bowel duct has pressure measurements made to determine whether patients whom after having had gallbladder surgery, who have recurrent right upper quadrant pain, may have dysfunction at a muscle called the ampulla of Vater. Biliary motility, in some of these cases, will help the clinician decide whether to make a small incision and open up this muscle, which oftentimes, if the pressure measurements are abnormal, will relieve the pain.
The physicians of ATEC are committed to see patients quickly and schedule time sensitive critical procedures in an efficient manner. We take great pride in extending a rapid response to requests for consultative services and/or procedures. Our scheduling process is as simple as one call to our Central Scheduling Department at (904) 398-7205.
Our experts in customer care will schedule your patient with the ATEC physician you prefer, or the ATEC physician with the expertise your patient's care requires. A central scheduling team member will begin the scheduling process by obtaining patient demographics, inquiring about ATEC physician preference, requesting the patient's pertinent medical record information and immediately contacting the patient. As the scheduling process is completed, you will be notified of the procedure(s) date/time/location for your records, along with the follow-up care plan. Prepping instructions, office and/or hospital information, procedure information, driving directions, lodging arrangements (if required), and follow-up care appointments will be provided at this time to your patient.
