New Web Home for Center for Gastroenterology

Details the content and development of the Web site for Northshore Center for Gastroenterology

The Northshore Center for Gastroenterology and Nutrition, a bowel disease research center and clinic based in the Chicago area, has launched its new Web site at The site offers information on the services offered by Northshore Center for Gastroenterology, information for patients who believe they might need to visit the center, and contact information for the center.

The site outlines Center for Gastroenterology's approach to treating patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Living with complex gastrointestinal disease, especially those diseases that are chronic such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, and intestinal failure, is often a difficult proposition for the patient and their family. Other problems such as difficulty or painful swallowing, abdominal pain, too much gas, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and/or diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and rectal bleeding are no less troubling. These days, patients also have a high degree of sophistication about their conditions and expect through evaluation and treatment, so Northshore Center for Gastroenterology and Nutrition involves patients, their families, and the referring physician in the decision-making process.

Also on the site is a detailed description of the facilities operated by the Center for Gastroenterology. The Center for Gastroenterology and Nutrition is committed to providing the Chicago area with a full complement of digestive disease services. Their board-certified physicians and specially trained staff deliver the highest quality care to patients in Chicagoland and beyond. Labs at the Center for Gastroenterology use state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic equipment to ensure early diagnosis and prevention, as well as treatment of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, short bowel syndrome, many types of cancers, and other disorders of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, colon, and rectum.
