NuHealth’s gastrointestinal (GI) specialists help patients with the full spectrum of debilitating disorders affecting the digestive system. Using sophisticated diagnostic imaging and testing technology, the GI team examines the physical structures of the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and rectum, and tests the function of the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. These tests may include X-rays, CT scanning, ultrasound testing, endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and more. Diagnosed disorders may be treated medically or in concert with Nassau University Medical Center’s experienced gastrointestinal surgeons. Commonly treated problems include:

  • Colorectal Cancer Screening
  • Diverticulitis
  • Esophageal Motility Disorders (swallowing, spasms, regurgitation)
  • Gallstones
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD)
  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (including Crohn’s Disease and Colitis)
  • Liver Disease (acute and chronic)
  • Peptic Ulcers
  • Polyps
  • Stomach, Intestinal and Colon Disease
