What is digestive health?
When your gastrointestinal (GI) health is in order, our digestive tract works to ensure we are absorbing nutrients to fuel your body. However, sometimes viruses, bacteria, specific foods or stress can cause digestive disorders. If you regularly experience symptoms like heartburn, gas, constipation, diarrhea or stomach pain, our GI physicians and staff in Wichita can help.
Whether you experience an occasional upset stomach or a more challenging condition, we offer comprehensive gastroenterology services to diagnose your condition and perform the treatment needed to improve your GI health.
One of the most common concerns for individuals experiencing digestive issues is the possibility of gastrointestinal cancer. As part of the Wesley Healthcare network, we can connect you with specialists for comprehensive cancer care if colorectal cancer is detected.
