At Sentara, we offer access to a diverse collaborative network of care aimed at diagnosing and treating the full spectrum of digestive disorders, from simple problems to complex disease. With technological advances and proven techniques, we ensure all patients get the care they need and the quality they expect.
Management of digestive disorders has improved enormously over the last several decades, often incorporating multiple treatment approaches to help ease or cure conditions and greatly improve quality of life. At Sentara, our quality physicians collaborate regularly to ensure every patient has access to the most advanced treatments. Our comprehensive team approach begins with advanced diagnostic equipment and incorporates state-of-the-art medical and surgical techniques, innovative pain relief methods and supportive follow-up care after treatment.
Our doctors emphasize minimally invasive procedures which result in smaller incisions and less pain for many surgical patients. In addition they often require hospital stays that are less than half of those needed after a traditional open operation.
