Treating GI Disorders & Gastrointestinal Disease
Our gastroenterology specialists treat patients with GI disorders ranging from stomach pain to blood in stool. We offer both colonoscopy (a type of lower endoscopy) and upper GI endoscopy (esphogealgastrodueodnoscopy or EGD) services in addition to GI consultations. We also offer screening colonoscopies which can be scheduled online.
Treating GERD & Other GI Disorders or Symptoms
We treat the following conditions and symptoms:
- Heartburn/GERD (Acid Reflux)
- Barrett's esophagus
- Celiac disease
- Crohn's disease (inflammatory bowel disease or IBD)
- Ulcerative colitis (inflammatory bowel disease or IBD)
- Abdominal pain
- Trouble Swallowing
- Eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Upper & Lower Endoscopy
Our gastroenterologists perform both upper endoscopies (which can detect signs of stomach cancer) and colonoscopies (which are used to detect colon cancer).
Getting a colonoscopy or EGD can be a stressful experience. We perform these procedures in our comfortable endoscopy suite rooms so you can relax. Our waiting area also has lots of natural light with large windows overlooking the Wasatch mountains.
Online Scheduling for Colonoscopies
Over 45? Get a Colonoscopy.
The gastroenterology clinic would like to remind you that regular screening is the best way to prevent colon cancer. Both men and women should get a colonoscopy to screen for colon cancer when they turn 45.
Patients with a family history of colon cancer or pre-cancerous polyps may have different screening guidelines and should ask their health care provider.
Colorectal Cancer Screening Guidelines
Huntsman Cancer Institute and University of Utah Health recommend you start screening for colorectal cancer at age 45.
Talk to your provider about what cancer screenings are right for you. Screening recommendations differ if you have higher-than-average risk and a family history of colorectal cancer. You may need additional screening exams.
Risk factors for colorectal cancer include:
- a personal or family history of colorectal cancer or colorectal polyps, including if it was found in a family member younger than age 45;
- personal history of inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease; and
- a genetic syndrome such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch syndrome).
Our team at The Family Cancer Assessment Clinic at Huntsman Cancer Institute helps you find out if genes play a role in your personal or family health history.
