From diagnostic tests, to heartburn treatment, to gallstone removal, our specialists are here to help you get back to your everyday life.
Digestive Conditions We Treat
Our specialists treat a wide range of gastroenterological conditions, including:
GI Tests and Diagnosis
Many digestive health services are available on an outpatient basis so you can return home more quickly and get back to the activities you enjoy.
Turn to North Kansas City Hospital for comprehensive tests for your digestive health including:
- Colonoscopy – Provides a view of your large intestine
- EGD (upper endoscopy) – Examines the esophagus, stomach and upper small intestine
- Stool analysis – Reviews color, consistency, amount and presence of blood or mucus
Ask your doctor about other tests that may help diagnose the source of your digestive distress. Keeping your digestive health in check is the best prevention for colorectal cancer or other digestive conditions.
