What We Treat
Digestive health services at the hospitals of Methodist Health System
If you've ever had indigestion, you've had at least a small taste of what happens when something's off in the digestive tract. The digestive system breaks down everything we eat into forms that can be absorbed into the bloodstream, keeping every tissue and organ nourished. The digestive system also carries away wastes that would be toxic if they built up. When a condition, infection, disease, or obstruction interferes with any part of the digestive process, the results can range from a belly ache to a life-threatening illness.
