Gastrointestinal (GI) Procedures

A Healthy Digestive System is Vital for Your Body to Function Properly

Promise Hospital is now offering outpatient gastrointestinal (GI) procedures.

The Importance of GI Screening:

Symptoms of stomach and intestinal problems can indicate a wide range of conditions. Some conditions can be acute in nature while others evolve into chronic problems. Many of these conditions can be resolved with treatment. It’s estimated that more than 34 million Americans suffer from some form of digestive disease. Among the most common include:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Chronic Constipation
  • Diverticular Disease
  • Gastrointestinal Infections
  • GERD or Reflux Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Gallstones and bilary tract conditions
  • Hernia
  • Ulcers
  • Liver Disease
  • Hemorrhoids

Medical specialists at Promise Hospital can diagnose and treat many of the most common GI conditions on an outpatient basis. In addition, we can perform many of the recommended screening procedures for GI issues, including:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Flexible Sigmoidoscopy
  • Endoscopy
  • ERCP (Cholangiopancreatography)
  • EGD (to check lining of stomach)
