Martha Jefferson Hospital's Digestive Care Center brings together the diverse medical specialties involved in diagnosing and treating disorders of the digestive system. Our board-certified gastroenterologists work closely with general surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and oncologists to coordinate treatment. Experienced, caring nurses provide personalized, quality care. Throughout the entire process of diagnosis and treatment, the patient's comfort and privacy is of the highest priority.
The Digestive Care Center relies on several disciplines and state-of-the-art capabilities to evaluate and treat gastrointestinal and motility disorders, liver disease and pancreatic and biliary duct disorders. Some of these procedures and techniques include:
The Digestive Care Center has been designed to make the experience as easy as possible for patients and their families. The attendants at the concierge desk in the lobby will direct you to registration. A nurse shows patients to a private room to prepare for the procedure.
Following the procedure, patients may rest comfortably in their room until they are ready to go home. Because most of the procedures performed in the Digestive Care Center are non-surgical, an overnight stay is not usually required. The following day, a nurse will call each patient for follow-up care and to answer any questions.
