Welcome to the Summa Center for Digestive Health
Summa Center for Digestive Health focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect the intake and digestion of food and other nutrients. In addition, a number of comorbid chronic conditions such as hepatitis C, depression and metabolic syndrome can adversely impact digestive health. Summa offers a comprehensive resource for diagnosing and managing all forms of digestive disorders.

Generally, digestive (gastrointestinal) diseases and conditions typically originate from the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder or pancreas.
Most of us experience common digestive problems like diarrhea or constipation which often occur without any underlying disease, and can be attributed to stress, inadequate exercise, or changes in routine or diet.
However, gastrointestinal problems can cause a variety of other symptoms, including:
- Indigestion or heartburn
- Fecal incontinence – accidental stool leaks/pelvic floor disorders
- Abdominal pain
- Jaundiced, itchy skin
- Loss of appetite
- Unplanned weight loss
