You don’t have to suffer through digestive problems. In the Sutter Health network, more than 200 gastroenterology doctors provide personalized patient care using the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options available.
Sutter’s network of gastroenterology doctors and surgeons offer advanced imaging technology and minimally-invasive procedures for disorders of the esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, small intestine and colon. Additionally, hepatologists in the Sutter Health network are available to consult on disorders affecting the liver.
Using the latest equipment and techniques available, doctors conduct diagnostic tests and examinations to detect potential problems in their early stages, when they are easier to treat and more likely to result in positive outcomes. For individuals with complex gastroenterology needs, such as gastroparesis and needing gastric stimulation or achalasia diagnosis and treatment, neurogastroenterology and motility physicians work with patients who have chronic abnormal muscular activity within their gastrointestinal tract resulting in pain, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting or abnormal bloating.
Affiliate hospitals within our network are ranked by the U.S. News & World Report as some of the highest performing in the nation for gastroenterology services. Across our network gastroenterology services and surgeries have earned five-star ratings from Healthgrades.
