Summa Health System’s digestive health services have been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top-performing hospitals in the country, earning national rankings for the specialty of gastroenterology.
With our advanced endoscopy suite located on the Summa Akron City Hospital campus, patients have easy access in and out of the facility and are offered bedside family visiting pre- and post-procedure. Endoscopy services are also available at Summa locations in Medina, West Akron (White Pond), Barberton and Wadsworth.
Our patients can feel confident in knowing that if surgical management is deemed necessary to treat their digestive disorder, they’ll have access to the latest technology and surgical techniques, including laparoscopic surgery and minimally-invasive, robotic-assisted surgery. Robotic-assisted surgery allows surgeons to safely perform delicate and complex procedures.
Benefits achieved from minimally invasive techniques include: less post-operative pain; faster recovery times; less bleeding and less scarring. Your gastroenterologist can explain all of the options available to treat your condition, including whether you’re a good candidate for minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery.
