Hospitals of Providence First in Region to Provide ‘Hemospray’ to Stop Gastrointestinal Bleeding

The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus is now the first healthcare provider in the region to provide patients with a new non-surgical way for doctors to stop bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract.

Hemospray is a device which contains a blend of powdered minerals that can be applied as a spray and administered non-invasively, causing blood to coagulate and helping to stop bleeding in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

When the powder comes in contact with blood, it absorbs water and forms a gel that covers the bleeding site.

“Hemospray provides a non-surgical option for patients with GI bleeding that could not be treated with our usual endoscopic therapies. Having this therapy made available locally is a testament to the commitment of the Hospitals of Providence in providing our patients the newest therapies for gastrointestinal emergencies,” said Dr. Emmanuel Gorospe, MD, MPH, FACP, FACG, an interventional gastroenterologist and co-editor of the book, GI Endoscopic Emergencies.

Bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract is a leading cause of morbidity and is associated with an estimated 20,000 deaths per year in the U.S., according to Cook Medical, the makers of the newly approved, Hemospray.

“At The Hospitals of Providence we strive to bring new technology to the region that is beneficial to our patients and the care we provide them,” said Tasha Hopper, Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus.

“Transmountain Campus is happy to be the first in the area to provide patients with this new way to safely stop gastrointestinal bleeding without the need for surgery.”

Transmountain Campus provides gastrointestinal oncology and advanced endoscopy procedures for the El Paso Region.  GI specialists are available at Transmountain Campus to perform an array of procedures to maintain the health of the digestive tract, detect early cancers and treat gastrointestinal emergencies.

The campus also offers advanced, minimally-invasive gastrointestinal, biliary and pancreatic interventions including endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) for cancer staging, EUS-guided biopsies, drainage and nerve blocks.
