Diseases of the digestive tract are responsible for hospitalizing more people in the United States than any other group of disorders. Mercy Gilbert Medical Center has gastroenterologists who specialize in the field of digestive disorders and liver diseases.
Whether the answer is a lifestyle change, medication or an endoscopic procedure, our doctors work with each patient to determine the best course of treatment, which may include performing screening, or a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure.
When it comes to digestive health, the importance of prevention cannot be stressed enough. Colon cancer is one of the most preventative diseases because it develops from polyps that can be removed before they become cancerous. A colonoscopy is the best screening to detect colon cancer. Learn more about when you should have your first colonoscopy.
