People with a wide variety of gastrointestinal conditions are seen at Ed Fraser Memorial Hospital, and our knowledgeable staff has many years of experience in diagnosis and treatment.
Gastrointestinal conditions may become apparent when certain symptoms appear. Symptoms like mild stomach ache may be of minor concern, but some symptoms may indicate a more serious condition. Examination and testing by an experienced gastroenterologist can guide you on a path to improved gastrointestinal health.
Many conditions can occur in any of the organs making up the gastrointestinal system and related structures. Among them are the following:
- Small intestine
- Large intestine (colon)
Physicians may detect illnesses or conditions before symptoms arise. Early detection is an important factor in treating or curing a problem.
Ask your doctor about the screening procedures that are appropriate for your age and gender.
