Treatments and Procedures Offered:

Dr. Travassos has experience in the inpatient and outpatient treatment of Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis, diseases of the pancreas, bile ducts and liver, Celiac Sprue and general gastroenterology. Procedures include upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, and other diagnostic and therapeutic gastrointestinal procedures.

What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

Our providers listen carefully to a patient’s concerns, and work to understand how that patient’s unique situation affects their course and treatment. We provide expert care in the diagnosis and management of even the most complex gastrointestinal disorders.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

Gastroenterology care provides a chance to improve our patients’ lives both acutely in the hospital setting, and over a lifetime for patients with chronic conditions such as Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Gastroenterology requires the study of a diverse array of disorders affecting people of different ages, from different backgrounds, and a variety of diagnostic evaluations and therapeutic approaches.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

For over 30 years our Gastroenterology practice has developed a thoughtful and complete array of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to evaluate and treat most common and complex GI disorders. Within the past five years our practice has started to offer capsule endoscopy, esophageal manometry and impedance testing and breath testing for a variety of disorders.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

The best reaction from a patient remains the confident referral of a family member or close friend.

What makes your business stand apart?

We are a dedicated group of GI physicians, passionate about our work, expertly trained, and committed to being at the forefront of Gastroenterology - caring for our patients within a community setting outside of Boston.

How many years have you been in business?

Our practice was founded over 35 years ago, and Dr. Travassos has been caring for patients at Digestive Health Specialists roughly 13 years.
