Stomach Diseases

Many people will suffer from stomach pain at some point in their life. Stomach pain can be caused by a variety of conditions such as ulcers, gastritis, bacterial infection with Helicobacter pylori, obstruction, delayed emptying and others. South Denver GI providers are leading experts in all stomach-related conditions. You can trust us to provide clinically advanced, comprehensive care to diagnose and treat any stomach problem you may be experiencing. Your treatment may involve laboratory or radiology testing, imaging or evaluation of your upper GI tract with endoscopy.

Gastric Emptying Study

When the stomach cannot fully empty itself of food, problems with digestion may occur. Your gastroenterologist may recommend a gastric emptying study to measure the time that it takes for food to empty out of your stomach and recommend treatment options.
