Dr. Caldwell performs procedures of Colonoscopy, Upper Endoscopy, Liver biopsy and Fibroscan. The latter is a safe and noninvasive FDA-approved device using a technique of transient elastography to measure the “stiffness” or fibrosis of the liver, which in many instances can substitute for a liver biopsy in the measurement of fibrosis.
