An upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy can be used to examine the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. Using a lighted flexible endoscope, doctors can see inside the upper GI tract using this procedure. This is a helpful exam that can tell doctors if a patient has severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett’s esophagus, or ulcers. If you have been diagnosed with any of these disorders, you should immediately schedule to see Dr. Bavishi and see whether an endoscopy is indicated for you. Patients that require this procedure can feel confident about making an appointment with Dr. Dipti Bavishi at her gastroenterology clinic. She has many successful years of experience performing endoscopies and offers preventative care as well, so patients can live a healthy lifestyle. She is double-board certified by the ABIM in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology and is a member of:
- The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG)
- The Harris County Medical Society (HCMS)
- The Texas Medical Association (TMA)
- The Texas Society of Gastroenterology (TSGE)
Some of the signs that indicate that a patient is suffering from an upper GI tract disorder include a burning sensation in stomach or a burning sensation in throat. Other symptoms include abdominal pain, gas and bloating, fecal incontinence, gastrointestinal and rectal bleeding (sometimes indicated with blood on toilet paper), indigestion, and irregular bowel habits. Dr. Bavishi can perform an endoscopy to identify which disorder may be ailing you. This procedure is known for finding out if the patient has ulcers, abnormal growths, precancerous conditions, bowel obstruction, inflammation, or a hiatal hernia.
Dr. Bavishi displays a strong commitment to patient care and offers viable treatment plans for patients suffering from upper and lower GI tract disorders.
