About Baptist Health Gastroenterology Clinic
The Baptist Health Gastroenterology Clinic in Little Rock provides testing, treatment, and management for improving digestive health. Whether you need routine or complex care, our specially trained physicians’ main goal is providing the best care for those with digestive concerns. Our doctors, staff, and nurses work closely with one another to develop a personalized care plan for you or your loved one.
Our expert providers test for and treat both simple and complex conditions with innovative technology. We offer BioFire Gastrointestinal Testing, capable of simultaneous detection and identification of multiple bacteria, viruses, and parasites from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of gastrointestinal infection.
We can perform the Medtronic Barrx Radiofrequency ablation procedure for Barrett’s esophagus. Chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can lead to Barrett’s esophagus, a primary risk factor for esophageal cancer. The Medtronic Barrx radiofrequency ablation (RFA) system effectively removes precancerous cells with heat. Clinical studies show the system reduces the risk of Barrett’s esophagus progressing to esophageal cancer by more than 90%.
Some of our gastroenterologists utilize first-in-state ERBEJET® 2, which is a new dimension in hydrosurgery that allows for precise, selective tissue separation gently by waterjet. Blood vessels and nerves remain intact up to a certain pressure. The ERBEJET® 2 dissects sharply and precisely with minimal trauma to structures such as vessels, nerves, and ducts.
A primary way a gastroenterologist protects the future of your health is through colonoscopies. These tests aid in detecting cancer early. Learn more about colonoscopies and the importance of getting screened.
