Stomach Conditions

The stomach, shown in pink, is located in the center of the abdomen and well known as the powerhouse of digestion. The stomach is the second stop in the digestive pathway. The stomach’s acidic environment and muscle contractions play key roles in the digestive process.

Conditions We Treat

  • Gastric bleeding – With the aid of vessel-sealing technology and camera-tipped devices known as endoscopes, our team can quickly and effectively stop minor bleeding in the stomach without a trip to the operating room.
  • Cancer, tumors and lesions of the stomach – Thanks to decades of combined experience and pioneering work with ultrasound technology, our team can obtain the most accurate diagnosis possible without a major surgical procedure, and can even provide some treatments for our patients through the same devices.
