Getting Effective Treatments for GI Conditions
Gastrointestinal (GI) Disorders
With some 70 million Americans affected by gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, chances are you or someone close to you is affected by a condition that adversely impacts quality of life, and may even endanger their long-term health. From heartburn to hemorrhoids, and Celiac Disease to colorectal cancer, these conditions represent a range of symptoms and severity that make each case truly unique. Palmadessa & Brodsky Gastroenterology Associates is dedicated to helping patients near you, throughout Queens, Flushing, Fresh Meadows, Jamaica and surrounding areas, attain and maintain GI health. At our comfortable, state-of-the-art facility, we use advanced endoscopic procedures to diagnose and treat a full spectrum of GI conditions, including acid reflux, diverticulitis, Ulcerative colitis/Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, lactose intolerance, ulcers, colitis, gastroparesis and more.
Upper and Lower GI Endoscopy
Though they occur commonly, conditions of the Upper GI tract (comprised of the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine) and the Lower GI tract (the large intestine and the anus) have long been challenging to address medically. Many conditions share similar symptoms, and one disorder may have a variety of presentations and causes. Today, modern endoscopic procedures have transformed diagnosis and treatment of gastroenterological diseases. The gastrointestinal procedures use an endoscope, which is a narrow, flexible tube that can be inserted through the mouth or nose, or a colonoscope via the anus, allowing for the painless examination and treatment of the entire digestive tract. Our board certified GI physicians employ the most advanced endoscopic tools and techniques in meeting patients’ GI care needs.
