The gastrointestinal system is an extensive network of tubes and specialized
organs that allow us to digest our food, remove nutrients and dispose
of waste. Because of its complexity and the foreign matter we ingest every
day, the system is susceptible to problems. Nearly 70-million Americans
suffer from gastrointestinal disorders, which are responsible for the
hospitalization of more people in this country than any other group of diseases.
From screening and diagnosis to advanced treatment and research, the Gastrointestinal
care at Harlingen Medical Center is providing the highest level of quality care.
