Digestive Health

Advanced Digestive Care

Your digestive system supports your entire body. The organs of the digestive system include the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. These organs work together to move food through your stomach and intestine, digest and absorb it, transport nutrients into your body, and remove waste from your system.  When you have a digestive problem, it can be painful, make it hard to eat, and disrupt your daily activities. The specialists at St. Joseph’s Health can help.

St. Joseph’s Health is a leader in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect the digestive system, from the common to the most complex. Our board-certified gastroenterologists provide exceptional, comprehensive care, from initial consultation and diagnosis through treatment and follow-up.  We work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan to reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

We offer comprehensive diagnostic testing to assess digestive problems, including advanced interventional endoscopy techniques that allow our doctors to see inside the digestive tract and perform treatment procedures simultaneously. If you need surgery, our experts perform robotic and other minimally invasive surgeries whenever appropriate. To provide the most comprehensive care, we work in multidisciplinary teams of specialists in endoscopy, cancer, surgery and radiology.
