Gastroenterology

Improve issues with your
digestive system.

Our team will work with you to find the right treatment options.

Expert treatment and ongoing support from Cookeville Regional’s gastroenterology specialists can help improve issues with your digestive system.

The digestive system is a complex group of organs that includes the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, intestines and liver. Understanding the conditions that can affect that delicate system can be complicated.

Our team will work with you to find the right treatment options. Our collaborative approach provides you with education to help you manage your condition and prevent new digestive problems.

The team of gastroenterologists at Cookeville Regional Medical Center will work with you to identify and treat those issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),liver disease, ulcers, lactose intolerance, heartburn, Chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis, concerns of the gastrointestinal tract and many others.

Cookeville Regional is the only facility in the Upper Cumberland offering endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), a minimally invasive procedure where the abdominal organs are accessed through the rectum or mouth and scoped with a camera and ultrasound, enabling the doctor to look further at the structures outside of the area.

Another procedure used to diagnose and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas is called Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). It is done while the patient is asleep and the physician using an ERCP scope. The most common things treated with this procedure as stones blocking the common bile ducts, bile leaking from the bile duct, blockage of the pancreatic duct from a stone causing acute pancreatitis, infections in the bile duct and blockage from a tumor.

Telehealth appointments are available upon request. Call 931-783-2616 for more information.
