GI and Digestive Health


Getting back on digestive track

The health of our digestive system can impact many areas of our lives. The pathway from food entering the body to when it exits, is considered your digestive tract. If you or a loved one are struggling to manage digestive distress, Virtua’s experts can help.

From preventive screenings and advanced diagnostic tests to minimally invasive surgery, cancer care and organ transplantation.
