Our Approach

If you are having problems swallowing, heartburn and stomach pain, you might want to consult with one of our digestive health specialist. CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Gastroenterology Laboratory is the first facility in Southwest Louisiana to offer advanced treatment for patients with Barrett's Esophagus. With our state-of-the-art ablation catheter, we can remove layers of diseased esophagus without the use of incisions. The procedure is called BARRX and drastically reduces the risk of developing cancer due to Barrett's Esophagus. The modern facility provides a full range of outpatient and inpatient endoscopic services. These services serve both diagnostic and therapeutic needs.
