Gastrointestinal (GI) problems, or disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, affect millions of people every day. Common health issues like abdominal pain and diarrhea can be the result of a number of painful and sometimes serious GI conditions or diseases.
Early detection is a key to the successful treatment of GI disorders. Adventist Hinsdale Hospital offers a full range of diagnostic procedures for GI and pulmonary disorders. Testing is provided for adults in a comfortable, convenient, self-contained setting in the endoscopy department which include admit/recovery, procedure and waiting rooms.
Nurses and technicians at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital work with board-certified gastroenterologists, pulmonologists and surgeons. Hospital staff and physicians use the most advanced resources and state of the art equipment, including high-definition scopes and monitors, to provide thorough testing and evaluation. The staff offers a team approach in educating patients and families on the prevention, detection and treatment of GI and pulmonary diseases.
Special consideration is given to children at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, where the pediatric and endoscopy staff are trained and experienced in helping children overcome any fears and concerns. Pediatric procedures are performed by pediatric gastroenterologists and pediatric pulmonologists and children remain with their families before and after the procedure in the hospital’s pediatric department.
