Gastroenterology

Stomach and digestive issues can cause a range of painful or uncomfortable symptoms, and they could indicate the presence of a serious health condition.

With specialist gastroenterology services available, our dedicated physicians will examine you and assess your symptoms in order to determine what might be causing them.

Further testing can also be carried out to identify whether you may be suffering from a specific condition, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, obstructions, diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel diseases.

Taking a holistic approach to your digestive health, our doctors will also identify whether any nutritional issues could be contributing to or caused by your current symptoms. If so, treatment may be given to ensure that your body doesn’t miss out on key nutrients.

FAQ's

Is it worth seeing a gastroenterologist?
If patients have mild or moderate digestive symptoms, they sometimes struggle on without seeking medical help. However, these symptoms could signify that a serious health problem is occurring and urgent treatment may be required. Even if your condition isn’t life-threatening, your health may worsen if your symptoms aren’t resolved and your quality of life can certainly deteriorate. With expert help, your symptoms could be resolved quickly and a comprehensive diagnosis made.
