Who Is A Candidate for Gastroenterology Surgery?

Candidates for gastroenterology surgery may be experiencing symptoms related to their GI tract that require further investigation, such as a diagnostic procedure like an endoscopy, a gastroscopy, or a colonoscopy. It is recommended that anyone over 45 receive a regular colonoscopy to look for signs of colon cancer. Signs and symptoms that indicate a GI tract condition may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • A change in bowel habits

What Technology Is Used for Gastroenterology Surgery?

Physicians operating at our facility have available the latest in minimally invasive technology and perform many surgeries laparoscopically or robotically to ensure the use of smaller, more precise incisions that allow for a shortened recovery timeframe and less chance of surgical complications.
