Gastroenterology Department

From preventative screenings to advanced treatments, Providence’s gastroenterology specialists offer comprehensive digestive care close to home. As one of the most respected GI groups in Northern California, our highly skilled physicians offer the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options, with a patient-centered approach to care.

Endoscopic Suite

Providence St. Joseph Hospital Eureka is a leader in endoscopic services. We diagnose and treat disorders of your digestive tract with minimally invasive procedures. The Gastroenterologists offer a full spectrum of GI care. Our rural community provides you with the luxury of working out of one hospital, which is within walking distance from our office. The hospital endoscopy suite offers state-of-the-art equipment and the ability to perform all endoscopic procedures, with the full support of a highly trained and dedicated endoscopy team.

Our experienced team offers both traditional endoscopies and cutting-edge procedures not available anywhere else on the North Coast. Services we offer include:

  • Capsule endoscopy — A test in which you swallow a capsule that contains a camera. The camera takes thousands of pictures as it moves through your digestive tract and allows your doctor to scan your small intestine.
  • Colonoscopy — A test used to screen for colorectal cancer and to look for areas of inflammation or bleeding. During this exam, we can also collect tissue samples and remove abnormal growths.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) — A diagnostic test for conditions that affect your gallbladder, bile system, pancreas and liver.
  • Esophageal manometry — A test that evaluates how well your esophagus works.
  • Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy — We pass the endoscope down your esophagus to evaluate or treat an issue in your digestive tract. The camera allows your doctor to see your anatomy on a monitor in real-time. This procedure can be helpful for ulcers, inflammation, infections, tumors and bleeding.
