Feeding Tube Placement

Doctor with patient


UT Health San Antonio's gastroenterology practice specializes in expert diagnosis and treatments, including feeding tube placement. 

Feeding tube placement services are available to patients having trouble swallowing food or liquids by mouth. During this procedure, a flexible feeding tube is inserted through the abdominal wall, directly into the stomach. This allows food, liquids, and medications to absorb directly into the stomach.
