 “I am committed to helping people with digestive disorders lead more comfortable and healthy lives,” Dr. Maran said. “I also specialize in capsule endoscopy, which uses a tiny wireless camera that takes pictures as it passes through the digestive tract. The camera sits inside a small capsule—about the size of a large vitamin pill—that is swallowed. Images are transmitted to a recording device worn on a belt around your waist. This safe and painless in-office procedure allows doctors to see areas of inflammation as well as tumors in the small intestine.”
