Causes and Treatment of Gastroenterology

Our specialists are trained in internal medicine and in treating diseases of the digestive system such as abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, bowel related discomforts. Our extensive years in this field and excellent outcome is an assurance for our treatment standards and post treatment care. So, whether you call in for a routine check-up or for major GI consultation, you will always be safe with us, the best treatment being available at your fingertip. Below are a few of our prominent treatments:

  • Bowel cancer screening: In this procedure, we look inside your colon for any benign growth on the bowel walls, called polyps. Some polyps are not harmful, but the malignant ones grow and spread to other organs and are cancerous by nature. So, we look for the signs of bowel cancer to start a treatment quickly. We conduct stool tests, colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy or a CT colonoscopy to spot bowel polyps and signs of cancer.
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Treatment: This condition can mostly be controlled with change in lifestyle such as change in dietary habits, and by avoiding food that trigger this condition. Oral medicines usually help control its symptoms like constipation, diarrhoea, spasms or bloating. Rare and severe cases draw attention to surgical measures to repair the damaged parts of the body.
  • Acid Reflux Treatment/Heartburn: An endoscopy will give us a clear picture of your condition. Usually, medication helps a lot for such conditions, however, depending on the case we do perform surgical treatments.
  • Abdominal Pain Treatment: Depending on your condition and severity of pain, we do suggest dietary changes to medication and surgery for severe cases such as hernias, gallstones or bowel blockages.
