Center for Digestive Disorders

Complaints related to the digestive tract are some of the most common reasons many people take over-the-counter medications. But a quick fix doesn't always work and might not be the best solution for what ails you.

Gastroenterologists, or "GIs," are medical specialists with extensive training in diseases of the digestive tract. Gastroenterologists perform a colonoscopy to screen for, and hopefully prevent, the development of colon cancer by removing pre-malignant polyps. The physicians at the St. Francis Center for Digestive Disorders treat many other conditions such as liver disease, esophageal reflux, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and ulcers.
