A Focus on Treating Digestive Issues
Effective nonsurgical weight loss programs
How much more confident would you feel about yourself if you were not overweight? We are among the first area practices offering the new, state-of-the-art, nonsurgical weight loss, gastric balloon placement for more – and easier – weight loss and treatment of obesity. It takes a few minutes to perform with no hospital stay, no incisions, no scars and no digestive system alteration. Inserted through the mouth, the gastric balloon stays in place for up to six months. Our one-year comprehensive weight loss programs continue for another six months after gastric balloon removal with our physicians and Registered Dietitian.
Advanced treatments for abdominal pain
There are many causes for abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation – IBS, gluten intolerance, celiac disease, heartburn/acid reflux/GERD and ulcers (peptic ulcer and stomach ulcer), to name a few. A variety of diagnostic tools are available to diagnose the cause of your pain, including colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, capsule endoscopy and blood testing to determine the cause and provide the best treatment options.
Effective nonsurgical hemorrhoids treatment
We perform hemorrhoid banding, also known as rubber-band ligation, using the CRH O’Regan System. This simple, safe option for the vast majority (95%) of hemorrhoid sufferers is by far the most effective hemorrhoids treatment. The procedure takes less than a minute and there is virtually no pain or recovery time. In most instances it is covered by insurance.
Colorectal cancer prevention and much more
If you are 50 or older (45 or older if you are African-American), you can save yourself time by scheduling your colonoscopy directly with our gastroenterologists. In most cases you don’t need a referral. Colonoscopy is an outpatient procedure and the best way to identify and remove precancerous polyps. We also perform:
- Upper endoscopy (EGD)
- H. pylori breath test
- PEG feeding tube
- Flexible sigmoidoscopy
- Single-balloon deep small bowel enteroscopy
- Esophageal testing (Bravo™ test)
- Capsule endoscopy
- ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography)
- Barrx™ ablation for Barrett’s esophagus
- Treatment for fatty liver disease
- Treatment for hepatitis B and hepatitis C
