Best Fort Collins Gastroenterologist

Centers for Gastroenterology is pleased to offer comprehensive gastroenterology services in Fort Collins. Our highly skilled and experienced team provides the highest quality care for patients with digestive disorders. The digestive system, which includes the esophagus, the stomach, the small intestine, the colon (large intestine), the gallbladder, attached bile ducts, the liver, and the pancreas, is an extremely important part of the human body. Not only does it play a vital role in the digestive process, but it also helps to absorb nutrients and eliminate waste. We strive to enhance our patient's quality of life through high-quality digestive care.

Colonoscopy

Colon cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States. A colonoscopy is a screening test that can detect cancer before it has a chance to spread.  It can also find precancerous polyps that can be removed before they turn into cancer.

During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube with a tiny video camera on the end is inserted into the rectum and passed through the colon. The doctor is able to view the lining of the colon on a video monitor and look for any abnormalities that could indicate the presence of cancerous cells.

Bowel Incontinence

Bowel incontinence is often caused by an underlying medical condition that is very treatable. We offer InterStim therapy to patients who are not candidates for other treatment options.

Endoscopic Ultrasonography (EUS)

EUS is an imaging technique that combines endoscopy and ultrasound. It allows the doctor to get a clear view of the layers of tissue in the GI tract as well as any surrounding structures, such as lymph nodes.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

Flexible sigmoidoscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the lower part of the large intestine (the colon) and the rectum.

Manometry

Manometry is a diagnostic test that assesses muscle function in the GI tract. It can be used to diagnose a number of conditions, such as achalasia, gastroparesis, and intestinal pseudo-obstruction.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also called an EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy), is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine) and search for any abnormalities.

Infusion Therapy

Infusions are an excellent way for patients who cannot orally take medication to receive necessary treatments. We offer a variety of infusion therapies for a wide range of ailments.

Capsule Endoscopy (Pillcam)

After swallowing a tiny, pill-sized video camera, your doctor will be able to inspect the lining of the middle section of the GI tract.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

We use ERCPs to examine the pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts.

Hemorrhoid Treatment

We use the CRH O’Regan System® to easily and painlessly treat hemorrhoids.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

Flexible sigmoidoscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the lower part of the large intestine (the colon) and the rectum.

24-Hour PH Impedance Test

This is a diagnostic test used to assess the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) as well as identify gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
