Gastroenterology (Stomach)

Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital gastroenterologists provide diagnoses and treatment for gastrointestinal diseases, such as Crohn’s Disease, inflammatory bowel syndrome, acid reflux disease, diverticulitis, gallstones, cancers of the digestive system including early detection and removal of precancerous colon polyps, and more.

To guide diagnosis, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital gastroenterologists use minimally invasive procedures, such as endoscopy and colonoscopies, to gather accurate images of the digestive tract. The group also uses state-of-the-art Pill Camera Enteroscopy to evaluate the small intestine—an area previously unreachable by normal endoscopic evaluation.

Treatments can range from medication to control symptoms to endoscopic removal of precancerous lesions, as well as endoscopic removal of stones in the common bile duct of gallbladder patients. A female gastroenterologist is on staff and available for appointments.
