Digestive Care

Helping New Orleans residents maintain digestive health

Maintaining the health of your digestive system is benefited by having a team of experts looking out for you. At University Medical Center New Orleans, our team of gastroenterologists, and other staff work together to help you make the right decisions regarding healthcare, diet, and exercise.

Gastrointestinal department

Patients undergo an intake and physical exam during which the physician(s) will learn more about their family history, health habits, and anything else that seems pertinent. If anything needs more evaluation, our medical center can accommodate you with laboratory testing, imaging, and endoscopic procedures as well.
