Advanced Center for GI Therapeutics

Diagnosing and treating complex gastrointestinal issues and functional digestive disorders requires both extensive study and training on the part of the physician, as well as access to the latest endoscopic tools and technology.

 

At the Advanced Center for GI Therapeutics, AGA’s physicians are experts at performing a variety of cutting-edge endoscopic procedures and tests to help patients suffering from chronic GI discomfort. These procedures allow our physicians to provide a more accurate diagnosis and develop more comprehensive treatment plans. 

 

The Center offers:

  • Tests to measure acid levels, muscle strength, and contraction/relaxation rhythms of the esophagus
  • Methods to evaluate and remove damaged tissue from the esophagus
  • Procedures to diagnose and treat problems of the biliary and pancreatic ductal system 
  • Tests to monitor food movement through the digestive tract
  • Methods to measure anal sphincter strength as it relates to constipation or fecal incontinence
  • Procedures to examine the small intestine and stabilize intestinal walls affected by bowel obstructions
  • Tests to stage and monitor all types of GI cancers – esophagus, stomach, pancreatic, liver, gall bladder, rectal, etc.
