Gastroenterology (Endoscopy)

While many people suffer from relatively mild digestive disorders such as dyspepsia or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastrointestinal—or digestive—disorders span a wide range from the mildly discomforting to seriously debilitating or life-threatening. At our state-of-the-art Knott Family Endoscopy Center we combine a dedicated staff with the latest treatment options, and the newest technology, such as high definition endoscopes, sophisticated monitoring equipment and Electronic Medical Record to improve outcomes and ensure you receive the best care possible.

Whether you or a loved one suffers from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), bile duct and pancreatic conditions, motility disorders, cancers of the colon and esophagus, or other digestive conditions, St. Jude Medical Center gastroenterologists can help. Our highly skilled specialists and nurses practice the high standards developed by the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, and we are one of the few hospitals in the country to offer Ablative therapy, using the HALO system, to treat Barrett's esophagus, a pre-cancerous condition of the esophagus that can result from GERD.
