Our gastroenterology trained physicians can help you learn about digestive diseases, diagnoses, and effective treatment options.
Gastroenterology concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases involving the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (colon), liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Our gastroenterologists are highly-skilled specialists dedicated to providing the best inpatient care.
Gastroenterology procedures performed at Memorial Hermann Surgical Hospital First Colony:
  • EGD – Upper digestive tract screening
  • Colonoscopy
  • Sigmoidoscopy


The American Cancer Society recently changed its recommended age for first colon screening for average-risk patients from 50 to 45. This change was made, in large part, because of the rise in colorectal incidence rates in a younger population over the last few years.


Our physicians will evaluate and treat many types of digestive problems ranging from severe to simple but sensitive in nature, including:

  • Gerd/Acid Reflux
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Colon Cancer
  • Colonoscopy
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Celiac Disease
  • Constipation/Diarrhea
  • Swallowing Disorders
