Treating the Digestive System

Gastroenterology

Gastroenterologists at Palmdale Regional Medical Center diagnose and treat diseases of the stomach, intestines and related organs, including the esophagus, stomach, liver and pancreas. These physicians are highly trained and educated on biliary tract disease (gall stones), pancreatic diseases and inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease).

Endoscopy Center

Endoscopy is a medical technique in which physicians use a device called an endoscope inside the body and inside hollow organs. Endoscopes consist of a rigid or flexible tube with a lens at one end that transmits images to a computer or video monitor.

Palmdale Regional has a full endoscopy unit where physicians use advanced endoscopic technology to help diagnose and treat disorders of the intestinal tract.

Barrett's Esophagus

Barrett’s esophagus occurs when cells in the lower esophagus are affected by chronic exposure to acid. Because of its strong association with esophageal cancer, Barrett’s esophagus is considered a pre-cancerous disease. Palmdale Regional Medical Center is pleased to offer the Barrx™ radiofrequency ablation system, a treatment that removes precancerous tissue (dysplastic Barrett’s esophagus) in patients with Barrett’s esophagus.
