When something doesn’t feel right, it’s okay to be concerned. That’s why we’re here.
Some of the nation’s most respected gastrointestinal (GI) specialists call the Digestive Disease Center at Missouri Baptist Medical Center home. We offer comprehensive care from screening colonoscopy to specialized diagnosis and treatment for pancreatic and biliary diseases. This dedicated team comes together for one very important reason —you.
In fact, specialists from across the region send us their hard-to-diagnose cases. That’s because diseases of the stomach, pancreas and liver can be some of the most difficult to diagnose and treat. These conditions are debilitating for patients, and often require highly complex treatments and comprehensive patient management.
The Missouri Baptist Digestive Disease Center diagnoses and treats a comprehensive range of gastrointestinal conditions including:
- Cancer — Various GI cancer found in the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver and pancreas
- Liver & Pancreatic Diseases — Primarily sclerosing cholangitis, cirrhosis, liver failure, pancreatitis, hepatitis and gallbladder disease
- Difficulty Swallowing and Chronic Heartburn — Swallowing disorders, esophageal motor disorders and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Stomach and Small Bowel Disorders — Inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulosis, irritable bowel disorders and malabsorption syndromes that impair food absorption such as celiac and tropical sprue
At MoBap, you’ll find all the expertise you’d expect at a major urban hospital – highly qualified physicians using state-of-the-art equipment. In addition, we provide a comfortable environment with a caring, compassionate staff of nurses and technologists, working together.
