Gastrointestinal surgery is the use of surgical methods to treat any disorder of the gastrointestinal tract. This means if you have any diseases or conditions of any part of the body involving digestion, gastrointestinal surgery could be a possible treatment method. There are many approaches to gastrointestinal surgery including, but not limited to, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic-assisted surgery. Patients work closely with their doctor to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that is right for them. If you are in need of gastrointestinal surgery then contact the experts at GI Alliance to connect with board-certified GI specialists.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with gastrointestinal surgery. You should talk to your doctor about any concerns you have, but a few common complications following any surgery can include infection, reopening of the incision(s), and the formation of fistulas. Your board-certified gastrointestinal surgeon through GI Alliance will go over all of your options for surgery, including minimally invasive surgery to help reduce the risks of complications.

Gastrointestinal (GI) surgeons perform gastrointestinal surgery. A gastrointestinal surgeon is different from a gastroenterologist, who diagnoses and treats GI diseases non-surgically. They do often work closely with GI surgeons. You can find both specialists by contacting GI Alliance, the nation's largest physician-led network of GI physicians. Together, your GI surgeon and your GI doctor will work to ensure you experience optimal health.

Many of the preparation steps for gastrointestinal surgery are similar to any other surgery, involving tests such as blood work and scans to ensure that your surgery goes smoothly. For gastrointestinal surgery, you will need to “clean out” your bowels prior to your surgery with a special fluid. You will most likely be prescribed an antibiotic prior to surgery to help prevent any complications. It is important to follow your doctor’s specific preparation instructions carefully to ensure the most successful surgery possible.

I saw Dr Paschall for the first time but I read a lot of good reviews about before I had my dr send a referral! I first of all liked his bedside manner because that was the first thing I saw about him! I told him my concerns and he immediately sent me for tests to see if my concerns were valid. I then recommended him to my husband and he liked him as well! Has also had several tests to rule out some things we were concerned with! I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Brenner took the time to understand my reflux issue and unlike all the other doctors I've seen, provided advice that actually helped. I really appreciated her looking beyond the easy fix of PPI's and truly helping me.
