Our Approach to Care
Digestive Care Tailored to Your Needs
No matter what your digestive symptoms are or your diagnosis, NewYork-Presbyterian's digestive care experts can tailor a customized plan of care with the goal of reducing your symptoms and improving your quality of life. We provide the full range of diagnostic testing and state-of-the-art treatments.
The most effective care begins with an accurate diagnosis. Because digestive symptoms (such as nausea, stomach pain, and indigestion) may be associated with different diseases, it is important to evaluate them carefully to determine their cause. NewYork-Presbyterian offers every type of diagnostic testing available to assess digestive problems, including advanced interventional endoscopy techniques that allow our doctors to see inside the digestive tract and perform treatment procedures at the same time.
If you need surgery, our experts perform robotic and other minimally invasive surgeries whenever appropriate. If a more extensive operation is necessary, our surgeons perform them more frequently than surgeons at lower-volume hospitals. Such experience and high volumes translate to better outcomes for our patients.
