Help for GI Conditions in Queens, NY
Whether you are suffering from symptoms such as abdominal pain, heartburn, GERD, or persistent diarrhea, it is important to seek help for your medical concerns. Some conditions can endanger your long-term health. For instance, over time untreated GERD can lead to serious complications such as erosive esophagitis, narrowing of the esophagus, and a worsening of asthma and other breathing issues. Precancerous conditions such as Barrett’s esophagus also can occur.
Even if your GI symptoms are unlikely to lead to serious complications, it is important to seek treatment to improve quality of life. The discomfort of more minor cases of hemorrhoids can be disruptive to your daily activities at home and at work. We can help you to implement lifestyle changes and make sure that you aren’t experiencing a more serious condition. Through painless procedures such as flexible sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy, we can identify the cause of the bleeding and discomfort and confirm a GI diagnosis.
When it comes to preventative measures to maintain GI health, we perform routine colonoscopy to screen for colon cancer at our state of the art facility in Queens NY. Prevention and early detection are key to defending against this highly preventable disease. Everyone should be screened beginning at age 50, or 40 if they are at risk or have a family history of colorectal cancer.
