Comprehensive Gastrointestinal Services
Franciscan Health offers comprehensive gastrointestinal (GI) services for optimal patient care. Using advanced technology, our expert physicians diagnose and treat colon, esophagus, stomach, pancreatic, liver and gallbladder issues.
The gastroenterologists at Franciscan Health have specialized training in endoscopic procedures of the digestive tract. While many GI treatments can be offered as outpatient procedures, we also offer inpatient procedures and recovery when needed.
Should I see a gastrointestinal specialist?
Although your primary doctor can begin treatment for many gastrointestinal disorders, a GI doctor has expertise in managing difficult or hard-to-treat cases. If you are regularly experiencing any of the following issues and are not able to find relief, talk to your doctor about a referral to a gastrointestinal specialist:
- Excessive gas
- Stomach pain
- Stomach cramps
These symptoms are often related to gastrointestinal disorders such as heartburn, acid reflux, GERD, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or Crohn’s disease.
