Gastroenterology at Pennsylvania Hospital
Gastroenterologists specialize in caring for
people who have diseases of the stomach, intestines
and other digestive organs. Endoscopy, a procedure
that uses a flexible fiberoptic tube to examine
the inside of the body cavity, is used to detect
many upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) problems.
Those with acute heartburn, indigestion and unexplained
abdominal pain can be treated by these specialists.
In addition, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers,
ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, esophageal
tumors, liver disease, pancreatic disorders and
other complex problems of the GI system are treated.
Gastroenterologists at Pennsylvania Hospital
are recognized among the "Top Docs"
in the region by Philadelphia Magazine
and Best Doctors in America.
