NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) is committed to meeting the unique healthcare needs of women through specialized programs & services. We offer a range of treatment & prevention services designed to meet the specific needs of women dealing with digestive disorders.
Women are twice as likely as men to develop specific digestive conditions such as Gallstones, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The range of symptoms impacting women can vary significantly from men with similar conditions, therefore it is important for females to understand exactly which services are necessary in order to effectively address their unique needs.
Our medical staff includes gastroenterologists with specialized training in treating women who are coping with, or are at high risk for developing digestive diseases.
