Digestive health is something most of us don’t want to think about, let alone talk about. Many dismiss conditions like upset stomach, heartburn, and/or abdominal pain – even when they become more frequent and affect daily life.

There are solutions to get back the quality of life you were once accustomed. You should discuss with your primary care physician or a gastrointestinal diseases specialist the symptoms you are experiencing. Patients suffering from any kind of digestive problem can depend on the team of experts complemented by advanced technology at Digestive Health Center at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. The hospital offers advanced diagnostic testing and treatment for digestive diseases such as ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett's esophagus, colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and ulcerative colitis).

Narrow-Band Imaging

Narrow-band imaging is an advanced lighting technology that offers remarkably clear views of the surface structure and fine capillary patterns of the mucous membranes, which are normally difficult to distinguish.

Using this state-of-the-art technology, physicians are better able to identify and isolate diseased and cancerous cells at their earliest, most treatable stage.

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an outpatient procedure that provides a more accurate and more precise diagnosis and staging of tumors and cancers in the esophagus, lungs, chest and areas involving the gallbladder, the pancreas and the rectum.

The procedure uses a special device resembling a capsule attached to the tip of the endoscope, which allows the physician to better pinpoint abnormal tissues and perform fine-needle biopsies into enlarged lymph nodes or suspicious tumors.

Because of the proximity of the EUS device to the organ(s) of interest, the images obtained are frequently more accurate and more detailed than those obtained by traditional ultrasound.
