Preventing and Treating GI Cancers
At Ascension Northeast Wisconsin, we provide seamless care from accurately diagnosing your condition to identifying the best treatment.

Correcting Course: Stopping Chronic Constipation
If your stomach and intestines are rebelling after you eat, don’t let this routine spiral out of control. Your body needs healthy foods to fight inflammation and to be strong. A lack of exercise and self-medicating with antacids and other vitamins can slow the digestive system to a crawl. Some medications, including high blood pressure medication and antidepressants, can cause constipation. Complications of diabetes and neurologic conditions like MS and Parkinson’s can cause nerve damage that affect digestive health. That is why our doctors, trained in internal medicine balance the needs of your intestinal and mental health.
Our doctors start by providing a holistic approach, identifying simple diet corrections, tweaking lifestyle habits, and managing medication side effects
Surgical Expertise with Robotic Technology
If your condition progresses and requires a surgical procedure, we are experienced surgeons. By removing blockages and polyps, repairing ulcers and hernias, or surgically resetting the bowel, overall GI function may be restored.
Our surgical approach includes a multi-disciplinary team:
- GI + ENT with Barrx Technology for severe reflux
- GI + Oncologists for colorectal, stomach, liver, and pancreatic cancer
