Common Digestive Problems

When you consider the size of the digestive tract and its many complex functions, it's no wonder that digestive problems are a common medical complaint. Nausea, constipation, diarrhea, gas, heartburn...In many cases, such symptoms are not a sign of major illness, but still result in significant discomfort.

Serious Concerns

However, when serious problems along the digestive tract occur, they require prompt medical intervention. Gastrointestinal (GI) procedures are used to diagnose a variety of diseases including ulcers, colitis, gallbladder stones, and cancer.

Medical Advancements

In the past, GI problems were sometimes difficult - and painful - to diagnose. Today, video endoscopy has revolutionized examination of the digestive tract. With this highly specialized technique, physicians use endoscopes and radiology equipment to "look inside" the GI tract without having to perform surgery. For patients, endoscopy means greater comfort, more reliable detection of disease, and more precise treatment. It's a lifesaver.

Our Center

The GI Center at St. Michael Hospital offers patients state-of-the-art medical technology in comfortable, convenient surroundings. Our specialized staff includes physicians who are highly trained and credentialed gastroenterologists, and registered nurses with advanced training in GI care.
