Steward’s Gastroenterology teams concentrate on the diagnosis and management of the full spectrum of GI disorders through the use of state-of-the-art and cutting-edge technologies and advanced endoscopy. Our team of expert and compassionate caregivers also has a strong interest in clinical research, which brings newer technologies into clinical practice so our patients continually benefit from the latest advancements in treatment and technology.
We offer state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with common gastrointestinal disorders, such as peptic ulcer disease or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as well as abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, and gastrointestinal malignancies. Our GI specialists also treat patients with hepatobiliary disorders, including cirrhosis, hepatitis, pancreatic disease and biliary obstruction. Our providers use a multidisciplinary approach for patient care that is accomplished through close collaboration with other specialists, all working together toward the best possible outcomes for patients.
Our skilled physicians also focus on preventative care, including colonoscopy, which is the leading method to help detect and prevent colon cancer. A colonoscopy allows for early detection and removal of colon polyps, which are growths in the lining of the colon that can sometimes be cancerous or may grow to be cancerous. Beginning at age 50, doctors recommend that a colonoscopy be performed, at least every 10 years, or more often if a relative has colon cancer, or if a polyp is found. Colon cancer is preventable and highly treatable when caught at an early stage.
