Digestive & Liver

Advanced Care for Digestive and Liver Disorders

Gastroenterology (GI) physicians specialize in diseases and disorders affecting the digestive system including the esophagus, stomach, intestines, and colon.

Hepatology is the study and management of diseases and disorders affecting the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas. From routine colonoscopies to the complex management of liver disease and digestive cancers, you can be confident you will receive the highest quality care.

Care Throughout the Capital Region

In addition to advanced care, our specialists perform minimally invasive endoscopic procedures, such as upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. For these procedures, your gastroenterologist will insert a tube through your mouth, nose, or rectum to examine your digestive tract and treat any problems they discover.

During a colonoscopy, for example, your gastroenterologist may remove small growths (polyps) that otherwise could become cancerous. That’s why colonoscopy is such an important—and effective—cancer screening tool.
