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. It also carries away wastes that would be toxic if they build 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.

Methodist Health System offers one of the most comprehensive arrays of technologically advanced digestive diagnostics and treatments at its facilities. Our specialized equipment and facilities, along with our experienced staff, help to assist in accurate and timely diagnosis for digestive disorders, followed up by the latest in research-based, sophisticated treatment for digestive diseases and disorders.
