Upper & Lower GI Surgery

Gastrointestinal Services in Ravalli County

In the medical field, the gastrointestinal system is broken into two sections: upper GI and lower GI. The upper GI includes the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, and other organs in the upper part of the body, while the lower GI includes the bowels and lower abdomen. At Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital, we offer surgical services for both of these areas, making use of minimally invasive techniques that reduce the risk of infection and allow our patients to heal faster.

The following are some common upper and lower gastrointestinal procedures:

  • Hernia removal
  • Colectomy
  • Gallstone treatment
  • Barrett’s Esophagus ablation
  • GERD surgery

Many GI surgeries are performed with endoscopes and/or laparoscopes. These are small, flexible, tube-like cameras that allow surgeons to perform complex procedures without cutting a patient completely open.

Our surgical team will make sure you know all of the surgical options available to you so that you can pick a treatment plan you feel comfortable with.
