Gastroenterology

Also known as: Gastrointestinal Services

At Providence, our goal is to provide prompt diagnosis of gastrointestinal symptoms to get you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. If you suffer from chronic heartburn, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, rectal bleeding or bloating, our team can provide you with the latest diagnostic techniques and research-based gastrointestinal treatments.

Our compassionate care coupled with top-notch physician expertise help ease the discomfort and treat the symptoms caused by gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Some of the most common disorders treated include:

  • Celiac disease
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Acid reflux (GERD)
  • Gastritis
  • Motility disorders
  • Bile duct diseases
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Colitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Esophageal, colon and stomach cancer

Throughout Providence, we offer a wide range of services and advanced, minimally invasive treatments, including:

  • Anorectal Motility Study
    If you've suffered from changes in bowel habits, loss of control or constipation, your doctor will likely recommend an anorectal motility study.
  • Colonoscopy
    A colonoscopy helps identify the causes of colorectal conditions and can aid in cancer treatment and prevention.
  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
    Accurate screenings like endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography allow our doctors to determine the causes of a wide range of pancreatic, liver and gallbladder conditions with detailed certainty.
  • Esophageal Motility Study
    People with esophageal motility disorders often suffer from chronic heartburn or acid reflux, difficulty swallowing or non-cardiac chest pain.
  • Pediatric Gastroenterology
    We specialize in problems of the esophagus, gallbladder, intestines, liver, pancreas and stomach in children and adolescents.
  • Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) Placement
    PEG placement is the insertion of a feeding tube directly into the stomach.
  • Small Bowel Enteroscopy
    Our doctors use small bowel enteroscopy to diagnose symptoms of digestive issues with precision and care.
  • Upper Endoscopy
    In order to treat symptoms like abdominal pain, inflammation, ulcers and digestive tumors, your doctor could recommend an esophagogastroduodenoscopy.

A comprehensive team including surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists and pathologists join the gastroenterologists in treating a wide range of complex diseases of the digestive tract. These include:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis)
  • Liver disease
  • Abdominal pain
  • Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
  • Cancer
