The gastrointestinal tract is a series of organs that food and liquid travel through as they enter and leave the body. The gastrointestinal tract is part of the the digestive system, which includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, pancreas, liver and gallbladder.
GI conditions refer to any disorder or disease that occurs within the gastrointestinal tract.
Digestive health conditions
Our team uses medical imaging and other diagnostics to diagnose a variety of GI conditions, including:
- Acid reflux
- Celiac disease
- Crohn's disease
- Gall stones
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Ulcerative colitis
We treat GI conditions with conservative approaches, like medication and nonsurgical procedures, before suggesting surgery. However, if these approaches don't resolve your GI condition, surgery may be necessary.
You can trust our highly skilled surgeons at West Florida Hospital to provide the appropriate procedure to resolve your condition.
Acid reflux incisionless surgery
Millions of Americans experience gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD can occur when a muscle at the end of the esophagus does not close properly, allowing stomach acid to leak back, or reflux, into the esophagus and irritate it.
West Florida Hospital provides incisionless surgery to provide a reflux-free life for patients with GERD. This minimally invasive approach gives our patients the opportunity to eat, sleep and drink regularly, with no restrictions.
