If you suffer from gastronintestinal (GI) problems, we're here for you. At the Digestive Disease Center, our GI doctors can quickly diagnose and treat you with the most advanced technology and latest techniques. Redmond Regional's endoscopy suites and operating rooms are equipped with high-definition video systems that allow surgeons to gain a detailed glimpse into the human body with only 5mm incisions. That means you receive high quality surgical care that results in decreased pain and gets you home faster than traditional open surgery.

Comprehensive Care

What matters most? Better outcomes for our patients. Certainly our state-of-the-art procedures are a key ingredient. That is just one aspect of our coordinated, comprehensive care program that is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals. Through a coordinated approach with Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Anesthesia and nursing, our team tailors the care of each individual patient including fast-track recovery, multi-modality post-surgery pain control and even shorter lengths of stay. This collaborative care approach also extends to our perioperative team coordination through follow up specialties as needed such as Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology.

Collaborative Oncology Services

Our Digestive Disease Program also works collaboratively with our Multi-Disciplinary Oncology Team to focus on early detection and treatment of cancers of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder and colon. What does this integrated team approach mean for you? Our multi-disciplinary team of experts is working together to provide you the high-quality, individualized care you can count on.
