Gastroenterology- Dean - WI

Skip to Content


Our gastroenterology specialists (gastroenterologists or GIs), pediatric gastroenterology specialist and gastroenterology dietitian provide consultation, detection and treatment for diseases of the digestive system (gastrointestinal or GI tract), including the stomach, intestines, esophagus, bile ducts, and other organs related to digestion. They provide care at multiple Dean Medical Group locations.

Conditions Treated

Common conditions treated by gastroenterologists include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Acid reflux disease
  • Celiac disease
  • Detection of polyps and cancer

Gastroenterologists are trained in Internal Medicine, and have additional training in gastroenterology. Our gastroenterologists work closely with primary care physicians and other specialists to provide comprehensive care for patients.

Endoscopic Procedures, Including Colonoscopy

Gastroenterologists are trained in endoscopy (upper endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, and colonoscopy). Endoscopy uses very thin, flexible tubes with tiny built-in lights and video cameras to view inside the digestive tract and perform minimally invasive procedures.

You may be referred to the Digestive Health Center (Madison) or to our Day Surgery Center for an endoscopic or outpatient surgical procedure performed by one of our specialists.
