Gastroenterology

The Division of Gastroenterology (GI) at Holy Family Hospital concentrates on the diagnosis and management of the full spectrum of GI disorders through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. The division addresses many disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. Screenings and treatment options are available with your specialist at both Holy Family Hospital in Methuen and Holy Family Hospital at Merrimack Valley. 

The GI division uses a variety of procedures and one of the most commonly performed procedures, colonoscopy, is a critical screening tool for cancer and other diseases of the colon. Endoscopic procedures are also used to diagnose gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and diverticulitis.

Other procedures commonly conducted include flexible sigmoidoscopy, upper endoscopy endoscopic balloon dilation, placement of stents, control of GI bleeding, liver biopsy, placement of feeding tubes, endoscopy of the small bowel and evaluation of the motility of the esophagus.
