Stomach Conditions

The stomach is located in the center of the abdomen and well known as the powerhouse of digestion. The stomach is the second stop in the digestive pathway. The stomach’s acidic environment and muscle contractions play key roles in the digestive process.

We diagnose and treat a number of stomach conditions, from mild to severe. Our expertise also includes placement and management of gastric feeding tubes.

Conditions We Treat

Gastric bleeding

With the aid of vessel-sealing technology and camera-tipped devices known as endoscopes, our team can quickly and effectively stop minor bleeding in the stomach without a trip to the operating room.

Cancer, tumors and lesions of the stomach

Thanks to decades of combined experience and pioneering work with ultrasound technology, our team can obtain the most accurate diagnosis possible without a major surgical procedure, and can even provide some treatments for our patients through the same devices.
