Address Your Gastrointestinal Concerns with Exceptional Care — and Without Unnecessary Stress
When it comes to solving gastrointestinal problems, it’s important to know your treatment options so you can choose what works best for you. The sensitive nature of gastrointestinal issues demands the utmost professionalism, skill and knowledge to ensure high-quality treatment — all traits commonly associated with hospital care. But we’re here to show you that the same level of excellent treatment is possible outside of the costly, chaotic hospital environment.
Take charge of your digestive health
Gastrointestinal conditions, while common, are often tolerated without treatment due to embarrassment or inconvenience. This is a mistake! Whether your symptoms are acute or chronic, here are some common gastrointestinal problems that should be immediately checked by a physician:
- Abdominal pain
- Persistent constipation or diarrhea
- Rectal pain or bleeding
- Regular heartburn
Failure to address these issues could lead to more serious problems. We at Pacific Surgical Center understand the uncomfortable nature of gastrointestinal symptoms and disorders. However, we’re also here to remind you of the seriousness and urgency surrounding these issues, and to reassure you that you will be attended to by talented doctors, compassionate nurses and attentive staff at all times.
A colonoscopy could save your life
Colon cancer is one of the most common and deadly forms of cancer. It’s also one of the most preventable… if it’s caught early enough. That’s why the American Cancer Society recommends a colonoscopy for everyone over the age of 50, to detect colorectal cancer and to remove precancerous polyps. At Pacific Surgery Center, our experienced gastroenterologists use a specialized endoscope (a flexible tube with a camera on the end) to examine your large intestine, and our center has a state-of-the-art endoscopy suite dedicated to performing colonoscopies and other endoscopic procedures with absolute privacy and excellence.
Maximizing convenience and high-quality care
Outpatient procedures such as endoscopic evaluation and treatment simply don’t require the enormous burden of a hospital stay. The same level of skilled, high-tech care can be found at Pacific Surgical Center, with the added compassion, reduced red tape, and the familiarity that comes with a smaller, less stressful environment.
Here at Pacific Surgical Center, you won’t just feel like a number in a hallway, because we are genuinely interested in your well-being and know that gastrointestinal problems can bring enough discomfort on their own — you don’t need an environment that adds even more frustration.
