The gastroenterologists at HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake provide comprehensive care for all gastrointestinal (GI) disorders affecting the bowel, colon, esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, small and large intestines, liver, pancreas and rectum.
Our team of board-certified gastroenterologists, surgeons and specialists have extensive training in digestive disorders and work together to diagnose and treat patients with simple to complex GI issues.
We are leaders in providing multidisciplinary colorectal cancer care. Our team of colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists and oncologists work collaboratively to make sure our patients receive the best possible care. HCA Houston Clear Lake was the first Texas hospital, and only fourteenth in the nation, to earn a three-year accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer. The accreditation is the gold standard for the advancement of rectal cancer care — the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the U.S.
Clear Lake gastroenterology services
At HCA Houston Clear Lake, our gastroenterologists specialize in offering patient-centered care in the treatment of a variety of GI conditions, including:
- Acid reflux
- Anal fissures
- Bowel and intestinal disorders
- Colon cancer
- Colon polyps
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
We utilize a variety of imaging tests and procedures such as colonoscopies, endoscopies and flexible sigmoidoscopies to diagnose GI disorders. Dietary modifications, lifestyle changes and medication can help some GI conditions, but sometimes surgery is the best solution.
We offer a range of colorectal surgical procedures performed by board-certified colorectal surgeons. When possible, our surgeons utilize minimally invasive procedures, resulting in minimal blood loss, faster recovery and less scarring.
Our patients also have access to physical therapy and rehabilitation services for conditions such as bowel and pelvic floor dysfunction. Our physical therapists provide personalized care to improve your quality of life and help with any uncomfortable symptoms you may be experiencing.
