The Gastrointestinal (GI) Lab
provides services used in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive tract. The digestive tract is traditionally separated into sections (organs): mouth and pharynx; esophagus; stomach; duodenum; small bowel (small intestine); and, colon (large intestine) and rectum. Attached to the digestive tube (at the duodenum) are two other very important digestive organs - the liver (with its drainage system, the biliary tree) and the pancreas. Our nurses are specially trained in the related GI Lab procedures and work hand in hand with gastroenterologists and internists to bring you the very best in treatment.
