Innovative Digestive Disease Treatment
Our innovative approaches to gastroenterology treatment include a less-invasive treatment for GERD, called LINX. Our board-certified physicians were the first in Northwest Indiana to perform this procedure, which offers another option to the standard Nissen fundoplication surgery. Our team also performs ablation of Barrett’s esophagitis with radiofrequency energy to treat early dysplasia of the esophagus.
For the full spectrum of digestive issues, we use the most advanced diagnostics, including medical imaging and laboratory services, in modern, comfortable surroundings to develop the most effective symptom-management and treatment plan for each patient’s specific needs.
