Supporting Your Recovery From Rare Gastrointestinal Diseases
How Our Gastroenterologists Treat Speciality Conditions in Houston
In the fields of gastroenterology and hepatology, there are many specialty conditions, rare gastrointestinal diseases, and rare stomach diseases that require expert care.
Our goal at Digestive Health Associates (DHA) is to help our patients in Houston best understand their condition, set up a treatment plan, and help manage your condition on the path to wellness.
We treat several different types of specialty conditions that affect the entire GI tract from the esophagus to the rectum. Some of the specialty conditions we treat include Celiac Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease including Crohn’s and Ulcerative colitis, dysphagia, and more conditions outlined below.
