Why Choose Nebraska Medicine to Treat Your Digestive Problem?
A Team Approach
To provide you with the most accurate and comprehensive care, our physicians use a multidisciplinary approach, collaborating with a team of specialists to ensure we have exhausted all possible diagnoses and treatment options. Our goal is to help you return to optimal health as quickly as possible.
Our gastroenterologists are experts in their field. They understand the symptoms of digestive disorders and will quickly run the necessary tests (physical exam, possible ultrasound or X-ray) to determine the source of your discomfort. Because of their specialized training, you can be sure that the doctors at Nebraska Medicine will safely diagnose and treat your digestive disorders before complications occur.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
When surgery is needed, our skilled surgeons will use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. Minimally invasive surgery requires very small incisions often allowing you to go home the same day or after a 24-hour observation period. Using specialized techniques such as miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber optic lights and high definition monitors, surgeons can make repairs without requiring you to undergo major surgery. Benefits include less pain, small incisions, less preoperative time, quicker return to normal activity, fewer complications and reduced risk of wound separation.
We have performed thousands of minimally invasive procedures with a success rate often three times better than the national average. Doctors at Nebraska Medicine have published papers about how to perfect minimally invasive procedures and make them safer for our patients. Because of our findings, centers around the country have changed how they perform these procedures. Our expertise and advanced training prevent possible complications from surgery.
To maximize your time, we schedule as many appointments with the necessary specialists and diagnostic tests as possible during a single visit. Our goal is to make your visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
