Esophageal and Stomach Disorders

Esophageal and stomach disorders affect more than your ability to eat and drink. These conditions can interfere with your quality of life — but there is hope.

At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, our dedicated team provides exceptional care for the full range of esophageal and stomach conditions. Our experienced specialists offer leading-edge therapies and successfully treat even the most complex cases.

Esophageal and stomach disorders care: Why choose us?

Our team possesses a deep knowledge of esophageal and stomach conditions, from acid reflux to esophageal cancer. Highlights of our care include:

  • Advanced therapies: We use the latest technology to treat esophageal and stomach conditions. Ours is one of the few centers in the Pacific Northwest to offer the gastric pacemaker for gastroparesis. This tiny, battery-operated device stimulates the stomach to empty at the right time, providing life-changing relief for people with gastroparesis. Patients from across the Puget Sound and beyond come to us for our non-surgical treatment for Barrett’s esophagus. Learn more about our diagnosis and treatment for esophageal and stomach conditions.
  • Skilled team: Our gastroenterologists work closely with advanced endoscopists, gastrointestinal surgeons, thoracic surgeons, pharmacists, radiologists and nutritionists. This approach ensures you receive seamless care that covers all your needs. Meet our team.
  • Research focus: Many of our doctors published research on new ways to care for digestive diseases. As our patient, you have access to these emerging tests and treatments that aren’t widely available. Through this research, we pioneered safe, cost-effective anesthesia for endoscopies offered exclusively at our hospitals. Learn more about our work through the Benaroya Research Institute.
