Gastroenterology at Norwood Hospital

The Division of Gastroenterology (GI) at Norwood Hospital concentrates on the diagnosis and management of the full spectrum of GI disorders through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. The division addresses many disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

Clinical Services

We offer many procedures including colonoscopy, which is a critical screening tool for cancer and other diseases of the colon. Endoscopic procedures are also used to diagnose gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and diverticulitis.

Other procedures commonly conducted include flexible sigmoidoscopy, upper endoscopic balloon dilation, placement of stents, control of GI bleeding, liver biopsy, placement of feeding tubes, endoscopy of the small bowel and evaluation of the motility of the esophagus.

The division offers a full range of clinical services including:

  • Colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening with polyp removal
  • EGD and EGD with balloon dilation
  • ERCP diagnostic and ERCP with CBD stone removal
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy 
  • Endoscopic procedures aid in the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcer disease and diverticulitis
  • Esophageal motility studies (manometry and 24-hour ph probe)
  • Diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, including the management of these diseases during pregnancy)
  • Management of Hepatitis B and C, as well as other liver diseases
  • Small bowel enteroscopy
  • Placement of feeding tubes into the stomach (PEG) or small intestine (PEJ) for patients who require supplemental feeding
