Gastroenterologists are doctors who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive system disorders affecting the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, rectum, liver, gall bladder and pancreas.

Conditions & Treatments

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is the most accurate and cost effective method for colon cancer screening. By searching for and removing polyps, colonoscopy has become the standard procedure for early cancer detection and colon cancer prevention.

In addition, colonoscopy is useful for evaluating other symptoms such as abdominal pain bleeding, changes in bowel habits, colitis and anemia.

Sedation for the procedure is provided by an anesthesia provider.

Upper GI Endoscopy

Upper GI endoscopy is a procedure in which a doctor uses an endoscope—a small, flexible scope—to see the lining of your upper Gastrointestinal tract.

An upper GI endoscopy or EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is used to evaluate problems such as ulcer, heartburn and acid reflux, swallowing, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.
