Everyone experiences the occasional upset stomach, heartburn, or other digestive or gastrointestinal problem. But, if you have a GI issue that won’t go away or that interferes with daily activities, it may be time to see a gastroenterologist.

Gastroenterologists specialize in diagnosing and treating problems in the digestive tract. The digestive tract includes the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, colon and rectum.

One of the best GI labs in Kansas City is located on our campus. The lab performs nearly 60 procedures every day, and works closely with our gastroenterologists and gastrointestinal and colorectal surgeons, meaning you can be confident in the care you receive.

"All nurses helping with prep for a routine procedure (colonoscopy) were outstanding. Each was professional, yet friendly and supportive. Although this was a brief encounter, I was very impressed with the treatment I received."
