Trust in Your Gut Feelings

Posted on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 at 1:23 am

Do you have abdominal pain or discomfort that is not going away? Do you need a colon cancer screening? Do you have a chronic disease like Crohn’s? Since 1997, South Lake Gastroenterology commits to offer our patients the latest individualized treatments and disease management by Board Certified Gastroenterologists.
About 75% of all Americans, men and women, will have hemorrhoids some time in their life. Many times, management occurs at home, but if the pain becomes too much or they begin to bleed, we offer a 10-minute in office painless treatment to help.
Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). In most cases, treatment for GERD occurs through diet and lifestyle changes. In some cases, GERD can progress to Barrett’s Esophagus or cancer. Diagnosis occurs through endoscopy.
Many people get diarrhea once or twice each year. It normally lasts 2 – 3 days, and can be treated with over-the-counter medicines. Some people get it more often as part of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or other conditions. We can help find and treat the cause.
Additionally, we are excited to have the Anorectal Manometry and Biofeedback system which can diagnose and treat pelvic floor dysfunction including incontinence and constipation.
We offer screenings of the liver and pancreas for bacteria and hepatitis.
We work closely with your primary care physician to prevent and manage digestive diseases.
