About the Center

The Capital Health Center for Digestive Health is advancing the level of care available to patients in the region by providing comprehensive, state-of-the art diagnostics and treatments for a wide range of medical conditions involving the entire digestive system all in one location. The Center’s highly trained and specialized physicians utilize cutting-edge technology to deliver outstanding care.

Our medical director is a board certified gastroenterologist with years of experience who helps patients and their referring doctors navigate the center and access the appropriate specialist or surgeon for the advanced testing or care required. Our Center medical staff includes the region’s pre-eminent medical expert in interventional gastroenterology and therapeutic endoscopy, who has unmatched experience using advanced diagnostic techniques such as endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and non-surgical treatments such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), radiofrequency ablation (BARRX), endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), and enteral stent placement.

At the Center for Digestive Health, you have access to a multidisciplinary team that includes physicians who have helped beta test the latest devices for digestive health that are not yet available to the public as well as lecture nationally and internationally on the latest technologies and surgical procedures that are advancing patient outcomes. Referring physicians as well as their patients get one-on-one consultations with these same medical experts, who provide direct care and guidance for the most complicated digestive health conditions.
