Dr. Dipti Bavishi is an experienced gastroenterologist who has been in practice since 1995. A gastroenterologist is a physician that deals with disorders of the digestive system and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The GI tract is the region through which our food is digested and absorbed. This tract is frequently divided into two portions: upper and lower. The upper GI tract includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, and the first part of the small intestine (known as the duodenum). The lower GI tract includes the other two parts of the small intestine (known as the jejunum and the ileum), the large intestine, and the anus. In addition to managing conditions involving the GI tract, Dr. Bavishi often deals with problems involving the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
A list of symptoms and diseases that Dr. Bavishi frequently encounters can be found here. Common conditions seen include acid reflux disease, gastric and duodenal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hemorrhoids, colitis, and colon cancer. Common symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders seen by Dr. Bavishi include abdominal pain, gas and bloating, indigestion, irregular bowel habits and rectal bleeding.
Dr. Bavishi also sincerely believes in preventative care and medicine. For instance, colon cancer is a disease that kills 50,000 Pluralize every year in the United States. However, this disease is extremely preventable and even treatable if found early. Many colon cancers could be prevented with regular colonoscopy screenings and Dr. Bavishi firmly advocates having these procedures when recommended. Sometimes due to the side effects of medications experienced by certain patients, Dr. Bavishi will integrate alternative therapies and methods along with changes in diet, exercise, and lifestyle to prevent or treat conditions.
She is board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. Dr. Bavishi is a member of the Harris County Medical Society (HCMS), Texas Medical Association (TMA), the Texas Society of Gastroenterology (TSGE), and the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG).
