Gastroenterology focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating digestive system disorders. This system includes organs found along and associated with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract—including:
Trios Gastroenterology is here to help adults who have ongoing GI tract symptoms, have identified risk factors for certain conditions, or who wish to be screened.
Many symptoms can signal a problem in your GI tract. Some conditions have no symptoms at all for quite some time. If you have GI symptoms or abdominal discomfort lasting more than a few weeks, see a gastroenterologist. Depending on your insurance plan, you may not need a referral.
Your Trios gastroenterologist may recommend tests or procedures to help diagnose GI conditions, including cancer. In the rare event of a cancer diagnosis, Trios Cancer Care experts develop and implement comprehensive treatment plans.
Trios gastroenterologists perform a variety of GI procedures, which are usually done at the outpatient, state-of-the-art Trios Endoscopy Center.
Your Trios gastroenterologist will guide you every step of the way toward optimal health. If you need surgery, your doctor will coordinate with the Trios Surgery Center. Trios gastroenterologists are on call after hours for patients in and out of the hospital.
Colonoscopy is the safest, most effective screening for pre-cancerous or cancerous colorectal polyps. Pre-cancerous polyps can be removed during a colonoscopy—often preventing cancer.
Most people with Hepatitis C have few symptoms—or none—for years or decades. But left unchecked, chronic Hepatitis C infection can lead to liver scarring and cirrhosis. Sometimes those can lead to other life-threatening problems including liver failure or cancer. Get screened if you are at risk so treatment can be most effective.
