At Northwest Medical Specialties, physicians trained in conditions of the liver and digestive system (hepatologists and gastroenterologists) offer comprehensive medical and surgical treatment for patients with disorders of the liver and digestive tract. Our physicians seamlessly combine cutting edge technologies with compassionate patient care to detect, diagnose and treat complex conditions of the liver, pancreas, gall bladder, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.
Our hepatologists, led by nationally recognized clinician, researcher and lecturer Dr. Anne M. Larson, diagnose and treat liver conditions ranging from liver cancer to hepatitis to end-stage liver disease. We offer a coordinated team approach to patient care–that includes the patient–because we believe that together, we can customize the care plan that works best for each individual. We strive to help patients understand their liver disease and review all possible treatment options, including liver oncology, hepatology and surgical services, and liver transplantation. As the field of hepatology continues to evolve, our liver care specialists offer patients the full range of treatment options, including access to the latest healthcare advances and new research protocols.
Our gastroenterology team provides comprehensive preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic services for disorders and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Our gastroenterologists have extensive experience in diagnostic and interventional endoscopy, ensuring proper and timely diagnosis, and treatment with the most advanced medical technology and procedures. We diagnose and treat a broad range of conditions including functional and structural disorders, inflammatory bowel diseases, gastro-esophageal reflux and cancer of the gastrointestinal tract. Our gastroenterologists stay abreast of the latest diagnostic, surveillance and treatment protocols, and participate in research to advance the care and prevention of diseases of the digestive tract. Because we understand that gastrointestinal conditions diminish quality of life, we are committed to keeping our patients informed and supported throughout their care journey.
