Gastrointestinal Services

The digestive disease specialists (gastroenterologists) at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center use state-of-the-art technology to offer a broad spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to enhance the lives of people living with digestive diseases and disorders - including those affecting the esophagus, stomach and small intestine, as well as the colon (large intestine), gallbladder, liver, pancreas and rectum.

Providence specialists perform more GI procedures in laboratories at our facilities than are performed at laboratories in any other hospital in the San Fernando Valley and in the South Bay. That's important, because medical research confirms that experience is strongly associated with better outcomes. The Providence Medical Centers provide the latest diagnostic procedures and treatment options for patients with digestive and liver diseases.

Comprehensive treatment is available for the following conditions:

  • Barrett's Esophagus
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) / Heartburn
  • Celiac Disease
  • Hiatal Hernia
  • Hepatitis A, B, and C
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Stomach and Duodenal Ulcers (Peptic Ulcers)
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Cancer
