Gastroenterology is a broad branch of medicine which includes ailments of the entire digestive system. It is highly recommended to visit a gastroenterologist in Sharjah if you experience any kind of discomfort in your digestive organs and are living in Sharjah or in Ajman. Blood in the stool and vomiting, loss of appetite, sudden weight loss, bloating of the stomach are all symptoms that should not be avoided. Sometimes it may be minor digestive health concerns as acid reflux and sometimes can result in serious health concerns such as cancer.

  • Acid reflux
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Cirrhosis of liver
  • Colon cancer
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Gas
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Hepatitis C
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • Pancreatitis
  • Stomach cancer


What Are the Types Of Procedures Performed by Gastroenterology Doctors In Sharjah For Diagnostic Purposes?

From mouth to the anus, all the digestive tract organ diseases are treated by a gastroenterologist. Based on the origin of the problem, treatment and procedures are advised by the doctor.

  • GI endoscopy is for testing the esophagus, stomach and the upper part of the small intestine.
  • Colonoscopy is performed for the examination of the large intestine (colon).
  • Enteroscopy is used for the inner depths of the small intestine.
  • Infra-red coagulation therapy(IRC) is a non-surgical treatment of hemorrhoids.
  • X-rays of the abdomen are also performed to detect problems with the stomach.
  • Blood tests are also a common detection procedure.


When to seek Medical Help?

Here are six signs you should consider scheduling a consultation with your gastroenterologist:

Abnormal Bowel Movements

Constipation: If you pass fewer than three bowel movements per week, your constipation may be due to blockage, neurological issues, muscular or hormonal malfunction, diet or other factors. A gastroenterologist may help you determine which the cause is.

Diarrhea: If runny stool persists for more than a few days, it could be due to a virus, parasite/bacteria, lactose intolerance, a reaction to medication(s), or it could be indicative of other digestive disorders, such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, just to name a few.


Rectal Bleeding

Causes of blood in the stool can vary in severity, but generally means there is bleeding somewhere in your digestive tract. This may be caused by an anal fissure (a small cut or tear in the tissue lining the anus), hemorrhoids, or it could be something requiring medical attention, such as cancer.


Frequent Heartburn

Occasional heartburn is likely nothing to be concerned with, but frequent heartburn may indicate Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Barrett's Esophagus, and possibly, even esophageal cancer. If acid reflux occurs often, you may be diagnosed with GERD and begin receiving medication to alleviate your discomfort, and have testing to confirm the diagnosis.


You're of Age to be Regularly Screened for Colorectal Cancer (50+ Years)

A screening test is a preventative measure, and should be administered before symptoms present. Colorectal cancer often begins as precancerous polyps that can be detected and removed during a colonoscopy.


Abdominal Pain and Bloating

Occasional, mild abdominal pain and bloating may not be cause enough to see a specialist. However, if abdominal pain or bloating occurs after nearly every meal you eat, or is accompanied by nausea, or painful bowel movements be sure to inform your physician of those aspects of your discomfort, as they may then decide to refer you to a gastroenterologist for further tests.


Esophageal Pain or Difficulty Swallowing (Dysphagia)

Certain ailments could cause you to experience difficulty swallowing, or inability to swallow. If you experience frequent esophageal pain or difficulty swallowing, or if difficulty swallowing intensifies over time, a gastroenterologist may conduct a procedure known as an upper endoscopy to determine the cause of your discomfort and begin administering treatment.
