  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
  • Pancreas

These organs play a role in digestion and your bodywide health, so gastroenterology helps you maintain good digestive and whole-person health.

At Bay Area Gastroenterology Associates, LLC, the experienced field specialists employ a broad spectrum of approaches, including screenings, tests, medications, and procedures, to understand symptoms, deliver solutions, and improve your digestive health.


What symptoms can gastroenterology help with?

  • Abdominal pain

  • Rectal bleeding
  • Acid reflux
  • Heartburn

Many screenings and tests are done in the Trinity office. Other procedures require special prep and are scheduled in an outpatient facility. But, they’re same-day tests and you can usually go back to work the next day.


Which treatments does gastroenterology use?

Treatments vary with condition and specific needs, but among the most common are:

Lifestyle changes

Lifestyle changes, like altering your diet and learning stress management, and other treatments work together to relieve and prevent symptoms.



Medication isn’t always needed, but in some cases it can relieve symptoms or help regulate your digestive system’s function.



Procedures are usually minimally invasive. The practice offers in-office procedures like hemorrhoid banding. Many screening and testing procedures are also done in the office.


Additionally, the practice regularly performs hybrid assessment and treatment procedures like endoscopy. For example, colonoscopy often includes both an exam and removal of small colorectal polyps.

When surgery is needed, the practice consistently chooses the most effective technique with the lowest risk level, often a minimally invasive procedure.
