Monmouth Digestive Health Center

Diagnosing complex gastric and esophageal disorders requires the most advanced tools. Monmouth Medical Center’s Center for Minimally Invasive Esophageal and Gastric Surgery offers patients convenient access to a host of advanced diagnostic testing procedures, including the 24-hour Bravo pH Monitoring System, which tests the pH levels in the esophagus to help determine a course of treatment. Additionally, through Monmouth Medical Center’s Medical Day Stay Unit, the Center offers access to endoscopy, motility testing, esophageal manometry, and endoscopic ultrasound, with fine-needle biopsy.

The diagnostic imaging department offers the latest state-of-the-art technology to meet all diagnostic imaging needs. Every image is read and interpreted by our board-certified radiologists. Services offered include gastric-emptying studies, upper GI series and CT scans.

Monmouth Medical Center’s fully computerized laboratory boasts a core staff of highly trained pathologists, technologists and technicians. An adjacent outpatient blood drawing station offers convenient access to bloodwork.

How do you know when to take a stomach ache seriously? Dimitry Oleynikov, MD, Chairman of our Department of Surgery, explains in the article, "When to Trust Your Gut About Digestive Issues."
