A gastroenterologist has many tools at their disposal to help check your digestive system, or GI tract, depending on your symptoms. In general, gastroenterologists diagnose and treat problems related to the digestive system, a significant component of that system being your stomach. If you are experiencing stomach pain, bloating, heartburn, or difficulty moving bowels, your gastroenterologist in Rego Park, NY, may be able to help.

Types of Testing

One primary type of procedure a gastroenterologist may perform is called a gastroscopy, a kind of endoscopy specific to the digestive system. A gastroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small, flexible camera to examine your esophagus, stomach, and upper GI tract. This procedure can help your gastroenterologist in Rego Park, NY, to determine the cause of your stomach pain, heartburn, bloating, vomiting, or unexplained weight loss. Other reasons to use a gastroscopy may include checking for ulcers, cancers, or any other growths in the upper GI tract, as well as any foreign objects if someone has swallowed one.

A gastroenterologist may use other types of testing to check for problems in the upper and lower GI tract, but not all of them involve assessing the stomach. For example, they may perform a colonoscopy to check lower intestinal problems, capsule endoscopy to check the small intestine, or endoscopic ultrasound to evaluate organs that cannot be seen with traditional endoscopies, such as the pancreas, liver, or gall bladder.

When To See a Gastroenterologist

Suppose you are experiencing any general, unexplained symptoms related to swallowing, eating, bowel movement, or abdominal pain. In that case, it may be time to make an appointment with a gastroenterologist in Rego Park, NY. The gastroenterologists at the Queens Boulevard Endoscopy Center are experts in understanding the digestive system and are dedicated to helping their patients maintain good digestive health.

Whether you are dealing with severe and persistent heartburn or you are having issues with your stomach, there are many problems that people encounter everyday in which they require the expert care of a gastrointestinal specialist. Wondering why you should add our Rego Park, NY, gastroenterologists to your list of doctors to which you turn? Here’s why:

A gastroenterologist is a doctor who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions and illnesses that affect the gastrointestinal tract. The GI tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, as well as the liver, pancreas and gallbladder.

Since a gastroenterologist deals with many different parts of the body, you can imagine just how helpful they could be if you end of dealing with problems in one of these areas. Here are just some of the issues our Rego Park GI doctors can help you with:

  • Heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Gastritis
  • Abdominal pain
  • Digestive tract bleeding
  • Problems swallowing
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Polyps
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Colitis
  • Hepatitis and jaundice (and other conditions of the liver)
  • Celiac disease
  • Nausea, vomiting, constipation and/or diarrhea
  • Stomach ulcers

As you can see, there are quite a variety of problems and symptoms that can occur that gastrointestinal specialists like ours will be able to better assess and treat than a regular doctor.

Most of the time people experience only minor or fleeting symptoms like diarrhea or nausea that go away on their own; however, if you have severe symptoms, if symptoms don’t seem to go away or if you are experiencing problems that you’ve never had before then it’s important that you turn to a medical professional who can give you the care you need.
