Stomach Diseases

The stomach is found in the upper abdomen and forms part of the digestive system, connecting the esophagus to the small intestine. It digests food and nutrients. Stomach Diseases include non-cancerous disorders and gastric malignancies.

Non-cancerous conditions we treat include peptic ulcers, acid hypersecretory conditions such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and gastrointestinal bleeding. Stomach cancer, also called gastric cancer or malignancies, may include cancer of the upper part of the stomach where it meets the esophagus, and is called gastric cardia cancer. Stomach cancer that occurs in the lower stomach is called non-cardia gastric cancer.
