Gastrointestinal tract issues deprive a person of one life’s simplest and greatest pleasures — the opportunity to enjoy food. A person’s quality of life decreases when forced to restrict his diet due to pain and discomfort. Past gastrointestinal exams and treatments were often unpleasant and painful, often requiring visits to other specialists in addition to a gastroenterologist.

Gastroenterology practices in the United States are quite different from those from around the world. American doctors successfully treat the vast majority of diseases of the stomach, intestines, and liver with the most advanced level of diagnostic methods and treatment methods.  Main diagnostic methods include MRI, ultrasound, tomography, and all types of endoscopy.

Various diseases of the stomach (ulcer, gastritis, increased acidity), bowel disorders (enteritis, colitis, enterocolitis), liver diseases (hepatitis, cirrhosis), gall bladder (cholecystitis, cholelithiasis), pancreas (acute or chronic pancreatitis) are treated every day by American doctors.

There is a special place for oncological gastroenterology at the Texas Medical Center. American gastroenterologists, and Texas Medical Center gastroenterologists in particular, diligently work and innovate to create the most favorable outcomes and treatments. Gastroenterologists help patients return to a normal rhythm of life without diets, medications, and restrictions.
