Good Samaritan Hospital's nationally recognized gastroenterology department provides diagnostic and treatment services to patients with diseases and disorders affecting the digestive tract. Patients suffering from stomach pain, ulcers, cancers, heartburn, hemorrhoids and gallstones have found the help they needed here. Physicians who practice at Good Samaritan Hospital use the most advanced technology and minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat all digestive disorders - from the simple to the very complex. An outstanding medical team specializes in conditions that affect the pancreatic and biliary ductal systems and the hospital serves as a regional referral center for these disorders and diseases. Good Samaritan Hospital is one of a few centers nationwide with the expertise to use laser lithotripsy to destroy stones that form in the biliary tract, pancreas and gall bladder.

The department's strengths also enable it to deal with the most technically difficult procedures:

  • Endoscopic ultrasound - to diagnose and treat a range of disorders
  • Complex ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangio pancreatography)

Many other procedures, involving specialized expertise and noninvasive surgical skill, are performed at Good Samaritan, including:

  • Capsule Endoscopy
  • ERCP with Manometry
  • EHL (electrohydraulic lithotripsy)
  • Laser Lithotripsy
  • Single Balloon Deep Enteroscopy
  • Spyglass Cholangioscopy
  • Pancreatic Endotherapy
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound with fine needle aspiration
  • Esophageal Manometry
  • Bravo 48 hour ph testing

The superb care delivered by our outstanding team of experts is also described under the Pancreatico-Biliary Institute, one of Good Samaritan's Centers of Excellence.
