Digestive Health

The digestive system is critical to our health – breaking down the food we eat into components that our bodies can then convert into fuel to provide the energy we need.

For most of us, this process is something we take for granted. However, an estimated 60 to 100 million Americans suffer from diseases of the digestive system. While some of these conditions involve symptoms that may be difficult to discuss, these diseases can be very serious and have a damaging impact on a person’s health and quality of life.

At Fletcher Allen, we offer a full range of services to address these conditions – from nutritional guidance to psychological counseling to medical and surgical treatment.  

As a university hospital, our UVM Medical Group specialists are of the highest caliber and will provide you or your loved one with comprehensive diagnosis and management that is informed by education and research, and based upon the latest medical knowledge.  

Equally as important, you will find our medical professionals to be approachable and understanding as they provide you or your loved one with the necessary care and support.
