Welcome to Our Gastroenterology Department
The Gastroenterology Department at our medical center is a comprehensive, patient-focused service provider that delivers expert care in diagnosing and managing diseases of the digestive system. Our team of highly trained Gastroenterologist and supportive staff are committed to excellence in medical care and patient service.
General Gastroenterology: Our team provides a broad range of services to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. This includes conditions like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and more.
Colonoscopy: A colonoscopy is a crucial diagnostic tool that allows our physicians to view the entire colon and rectum. It is used to diagnose colon and rectal problems and to perform biopsies and remove colon polyps. Most importantly, it is an effective screening tool for colon cancer, which is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths.
Sigmoidoscopy: This is a procedure similar to colonoscopy, but it only examines up to the sigmoid part of the colon, which is the last two feet of the large intestine. It can be used to investigate symptoms such as bleeding, pain, or changes in bowel habits. It is also used to screen for colorectal cancer in its early stages.
Endoscopic Procedures: We offer various endoscopic procedures, including gastroscopy, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), to diagnose and treat conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract, bile ducts, and pancreas.
Liver Disease Management: We provide comprehensive care for patients with various forms of liver disease, including viral hepatitis, fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.
