As the prefix “gastro” implies, gastroenterology is a branch of medicine focused on the identification and treatment of digestive system disorders. Gastroenterologists possess unique education and experience in managing diseases that affect all parts of the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, intestines, colon, rectum, gallbladder, pancreas, and liver and bile ducts. The medical team at Blue Valley Hospital includes experienced, professional gastroenterologists who are able to help you with the management and treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract or larger digestive system.
The on-staff gastroenterology specialists at Blue Valley Hospital have vast experience and expertise in a range of surgical procedures. Some of the most common procedures we perform at Blue Valley Hospital include the following:
Colonoscopies are employed to screen for colon cancer, as well as to explore potential causes of changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, weight loss, and other symptoms.
EGDs (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) screen for esophageal issues that may explain symptoms such as heartburn, upper abdominal pain, early satiety, chronic nausea or vomiting, black or tarry stools, and anemia.
Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication is a procedure commonly used to treat chronic acid reflux disease (aka gastro esophageal reflux disease or GERD) that does not respond to over-the-counter medications or other more conservative treatments.
Our GI specialists also consult on and treat a number of other gastrointestinal disorders, so if you require gastroenterology services in Kansas City for any condition, contact us today to make an appointment for a consultation.
