Gastroenterology (GI) focuses on digestion and issues of the digestive system. We provide services including but not limited to colonoscopies, EGDs, endoscopies, and GI ultrasounds. If you believe you are having digestive symptoms or issues that are preventing you from a higher quality of life, or if you believe these issues may be life threatening, please call our hospital to schedule an appointment with one of our gastroenterologists.

In gastroenterology, imaging plays a key role in diagnosing conditions. The following are some common imaging techniques used in the GI Department:

  • Endoscopy. An endoscopy is a non-surgical procedure in which a flexible tube called an endoscope is used to examine parts of the digestive tract. A light and camera are attached to the endoscope, allowing doctors to see color images of the digestive tract.
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). Also referred to as an upper GI endoscopy, an EGD is used to view the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine.
  • Colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is also a form of endoscopy. However, the endoscope enters the body through the rectum in order to view the large intestine (colon).
  • GI ultrasound. Also called an abdominal ultrasound, the procedure uses sound waves to produce images of the internal organs. Ultrasounds are safe, painless, and non-invasive, and capture images in real time.

For more information on how our gastroenterology team can get you back on your feet and enjoying life in great health, call South Coast Global Medical Center at (714) 754-5454.

Pain management and physical therapy may not always address the root cause of joint pain. After a thorough consultation, orthopedic surgery may be the answer. We offer our patients surgical and non-surgical treatment options as well as total joint replacement and arthroscopic surgeries. There are more than 100 types of arthritis ranging from osteoarthritis to rheumatoid arthritis. Our expertise is identifying the cause and mapping out a strategy to end joint pain.  

Our approach to serious orthopedic conditions, injuries, and disorders always include a full evaluation of our patients’ health. We provide thorough and comprehensive tests often including CAT (CT) scans, X-rays, and in some cases, MRI scans, as well as a full evaluation of the body and family health history of each patient. Extensive testing is then evaluated to determine the best possible treatment with the patients’ long-term well-being and recovery as our primary objective.
