We dedicate our service to caring for patients with digestive and liver problems and for colon cancer prevention.

We provide this care with compassion and consideration for the comfort and concerns for those we serve. We also assist with colon cancer screenings, heartburn, GERD, and much more.
Colon Cancer Screening
Colorectal cancers start in the lining of the large bowel. Most colon and rectal cancers begin as a small growth on the bowel wall: a colorectal polyp or adenoma. These growths are usually benign, but some develop into cancer over time. Most colon and rectal cancers can be prevented if polyps are found and removed. Colonoscopy is the best test to find and remove colon and rectal polyps before they turn into cancer.

Hemorrhoid Treatment with the CRH O'Regan System
Alaska Digestive and Liver Disease is now offering the CRH O’Regan System®. A simple, painless, and effective way to treat hemorrhoids!
Hemorrhoids are nothing to be embarrassed about – in fact, about 50% of the population will suffer from them by the age of 50.
For many, ointments and creams will only mask symptoms to provide temporary relief. They do not address the root of the problem that is causing the pain, itching, bleeding, and overall discomfort.
If you’re serious about getting rid of hemorrhoids once and for all, it’s time to consider a definitive treatment.
The CRH O’Regan System®
The CRH O’Regan System® offers patients a painless, proven effective solution to the problems associated with hemorrhoids through a unique take on a procedure called hemorrhoid banding, or rubber band ligation.
Much less invasive than a surgical hemorrhoidectomy, hemorrhoid banding with the CRH O’Regan System®, is a simple treatment that can be performed in just minutes with little to no discomfort. There isn’t any prep or sedation and most patients are even able to return to work the same day.
How it Works
Gentle suction is used to place a small rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid in an area where there aren’t any nerve endings. This only takes about 60 seconds. After a few days, the hemorrhoid will begin to shrink and fall off – you probably won’t even notice when it does!
