What Does a Gastrointestinal Surgeon Treat?

Gastrointestinal (GI) surgeons identify problems and heal conditions of your digestive tract that affect your:

  • Esophagus
  • Gallbladder
  • Large intestine (colon)
  • Stomach
  • Liver
  • Pancreas
  • Rectum
  • Small intestine

Abdominal & Digestive Procedures

Count on physicians at North Carolina Surgery to perform gastrointestinal surgeries including:

Treatment for Colon, Rectum & Anus

Partner with North Carolina surgeons to treat diseases affecting your colorectal system. Your digestive tract is linked to your colon (large intestine) and your rectum, meaning your GI surgeon may refer you to the colorectal surgery staff at North Carolina Surgery. Colorectal surgeons treat conditions such as diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, hemorrhoids and anal fissures. Gastrointestinal surgeons and colorectal surgeons will often work together to treat your condition.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

You’ll benefit from North Carolina Surgery surgeons trained in all aspects of abdominal and digestive surgery. When possible, your surgeon will use laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery. During this type of surgery, your surgeon uses a thin tool with a tiny video camera that helps them make fewer incisions to see and work inside your body. When you have minimally invasive surgery, you may experience less pain and scarring.
