Emerson Hospital

Medical Gastroenterology/ Colonoscopy

If you suffer from a digestive disease, it’s important to know that various therapies, medications and non-surgical approaches can be effective in managing your condition.

In addition to offering a full range of gastrointestinal diagnostic services, the gastroenterology specialists at Emerson Hospital see referred patients with a variety of gastrointestinal problems — from heartburn, diarrhea, constipation and gastrointestinal bleeding, to more complex concerns such as inflammatory bowel disease, difficulty swallowing and liver problems.

Our board-certified gastroenterologists work closely with you and your primary care physician to create a personalized care plan tailored to your specific symptoms and needs. 

Whenever possible, we take a non-invasive approach to care, which can include:
  • Dietary and lifestyle changes
  • Nutritional therapy
  • Today’s most effective medications, including advanced biologic therapies proven effective in treating such conditions as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Biofeedback to help gain control over involuntary bodily functions, which can help those suffering from constipation and fecal incontinence 

When gastrointestinal surgery turns out to be the best option, you can feel confident that our expert gastrointestinal surgeons are highly experienced in a variety of gastrointestinal procedures, including advanced minimally invasive techniques.
