The gastrointestinal (GI) tract includes everything from the mouth to the anus. Our gastroenterologists can help you with diseases involving the:

  • Esophagus (food pipe)
  • Stomach
  • Small intestine
  • Large intestine (or colon and rectum)


We can help you with many types of problems, such as:

  • Small bowel problems
  • Colon (large intestine) problems
  • Functional gastrointestinal problems, such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Liver disease (hepatitis, cirrhosis and fatty liver, among others)
  • Biliary tract (the plumbing system of the liver which delivers bile to the intestine to help your body digest food) diseases, such as gallstones or hardened deposits of bile
  • Pancreatic diseases (the pancreas is another organ involved in digestion)


Some of the ways we can help include:

  • Colonoscopy (an exam of the inside of the large intestine that uses a tube that bends easily with a camera at the end)
  • Upper GI endoscopy (an exam that also uses a similar tube)
  • Bravo™ pH monitoring (a tool to help find acid reflux problems)
  • Barrx™ radiofrequency ablation (a tool used to destroy a precancerous change in the esophagus)
  • ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography)
  • EUS (endoscopic ultrasound)
  • Capsule endoscopy (camera pill)
  • 24-hour pH manometry (a test that looks at pressure in the esophagus)


We offer inpatient and outpatient procedures (surgeries) at these locations:

  • Capsule endoscopy (camera pill) helps us take a video of the inside of your small intestine.

    Here’s what happens: 

    • You swallow a capsule the size of a large vitamin.
    • The capsule travels naturally through your small intestine.
    • The capsule’s camera takes up to 50,000 photos.

    Capsule endoscopy helps your doctor find potential problems, such as:

    • Ulcers
    • Polyps (small growths)
    • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease)
    • Vascular malformations (problems in the blood vessels)
    • Tumors (cancerous or noncancerous growths) in the small intestine

    Here’s how it works: 

    • You swallow a small capsule in the morning in your doctor’s office.
    • You wear a battery-operated data recorder for up to eight hours.
    • The capsule's camera sends images of the intestinal track twice each second to sensors worn around your abdomen (the middle of your body). 
    • At the end of the day, the images are downloaded to a computer and viewed by your doctor. 
    • The capsule is excreted normally.
    OR
  • Beginning at age 45, all adults should have a colon cancer screening and a follow-up screening every ten years after the first one. It's important not to delay. One test can make a big difference for your health.

  • Fatty liver (steatosis of the liver) is one of the most common reasons people have abnormal liver blood tests. The liver handles fat. It takes fats (lipoproteins) from the blood and releases them in a different form. The liver also makes and burns fat.
