Your Guide for Digestive Health
The hospitals of Community Healthcare System provide a wide range of services to help diagnose, treat and prevent digestive issues such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett's esophagus, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, colon cancer and others. Using the latest endoscopic and diagnostic equipment and lab tests, our medical experts can thoroughly evaluate conditions of the upper and lower GI tracts and deliver effective treatments to achieve optimal digestive health.
Our innovative approaches to treatment include a minimally invasive treatment for GERD, called Esophyx TIF (transoral incisionless fundoplication). Our board-certified gastroenterologists were the first in Northwest Indiana to perform this procedure. 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.
