GERD & HEARTBURN
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly referred to as GERD, is a medical condition in which the acidic juices in your stomach splash back into your esophagus, irritating the esophageal lining.
Hemorrhoids are veins around the anus or lower rectum that have become swollen and inflamed and are extremely common in men and women. Hemorrhoids can happen either inside the anus or under the skin.
A colonoscopy is a medical outpatient procedure that lets the gastroenterologist examine the lining of your large intestine. Colonoscopy is performed to test for colon cancer and pre-cancerous polyps.
Upper endoscopy helps gastroenterologists find the source of symptoms such as upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or difficulty swallowing.
As a trained Gastroenterologist, I am familiar with the signs and treatment options of hemorrhoids including laser hemorrhoid removal.
IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a disorder characterized most commonly by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea.
