Have you ever thought about how food moves through your body? A gastroenterologist has, along with how the body absorbs nutrients and removes waste. Gastroenterology focuses on the health of the digestive system—esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts—and liver.
St. Luke’s Health is committed to advancing gastroenterology while helping our communities grow healthier and stronger. Our expertise and our belief in the power of humankindness allows us to care for patients with some of the most complex conditions.
Our experienced board-certified gastroenterologists serve patients throughout our health system. No matter where you live or which location you choose, you can trust that we will provide the same patient-centered standards of quality care to everyone.
We are home to one of the largest and most experienced groups of gastroenterologic and general surgeons in the United States, and Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center recently received recognition by U.S. News & World Report as a High Performing Hospital in Gastroenterology & GI Surgery.
