Your digestive system involves so many parts of the body – your throat, stomach, intestines, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder and liver. So, when you experience pain or discomfort in any of those areas, it’s important to see a specialist who understands this connected system and can help you find the relief you need.
At Central Maine Healthcare, our board-certified gastroenterologists are up to the task. We provide expert care for all types of gastric problems, from everyday stomach ailments to complex intestinal, swallowing and inflammatory conditions. Working closely with you, we’ll create a tailor-made treatment plan to relieve your specific symptoms, so you can get back to your life.
Specialized Care for Digestive Disorders
Our GI doctors combine years of experience with compassionate care to diagnose and treat any gastric issue. Specialties include:
Each condition calls for a different path to find the best diagnosis. Some can be identified by blood tests alone; for others we might use X-rays, a CT or MRI, colonoscopy or endoscopy—a painless procedure in which your doctor inserts a thin tube, with a camera attached at the end, into your digestive tract to see what’s happening.
No matter how complex, we can help manage the problem successfully, and, in many instances, completely cure it. Depending on your symptoms, treatment options may include medication, lifestyle support, minimally invasive procedures or other therapies to meet your needs.
Helping You Take Control
Some digestive disorders will be with you long-term, and you may need a program of self-management to keep symptoms at bay. Our team, including registered dietitians, is here to show you the skills and tools to support your healthiest life.
