Gastrointestinal Services

Excellence in Digestive System Care 

From heartburn to colonoscopies, our experienced gastroenterology team at Northside Hospital provides expert diagnosis and treatment for all aspects of your digestive health.

Your gastrointestinal (GI) system is responsible for the entry and exit of food, water and nutrients. It spans from the mouth to the rectum. A few of the common GI disorders people experience include trouble swallowing, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach pain and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). 

No matter the condition, our gastroenterologists, specialty nurses, technicians and other Northside Hospital clinical specialists take a team approach to find the right diagnosis and treatment plan for you.  

Advanced Gastroenterology Diagnosis and Treatment

Northside Hospital’s Advanced Center for GI Therapeutics and leading-edge GI Endoscopy Centers give you all the advantages of the latest, most innovative procedures to diagnose and treat digestive health issues. While some services might require a hospital stay in one of our dedicated GI units, many procedures can be done conveniently at our outpatient centers so you can go home the same day.

Routine colon cancer screenings, called colonoscopies, are one example of a common outpatient GI procedure. During this test, our doctors use a tiny video camera to look inside your colon for growths, called polyps, that might later turn into cancer. At Northside, polyps can be removed during your colonoscopy.

If you are diagnosed with GERD
We offer an advanced, minimally invasive outpatient treatment called the LINX® System. Unlike common heartburn prescriptions, LINX treatments can help keep stomach acid from going back up into the esophagus and causing damage. The procedure only takes about an hour and can deliver long-lasting relief.
