Whether you’re experiencing difficulty swallowing, mysterious abdominal pain, or unexplained blood in your stool, a highly qualified gastroenterologist such as those here at The Medical Group of South Florida, in Jupiter, Florida, can help uncover the cause.
Gastroenterology is a subspecialty of internal medicine which focuses on detecting and treating conditions and diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Their field of expertise encompasses such diverse conditions as pancreatitis, colon cancer, stomach ulcers, hemorrhoids, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hepatitis C, and gallstones, among many others.
Care and Treatment
Gastroenterologists not only treat GI diseases, but aid in their prevention. This includes conducting regular colorectal cancer screenings and educating patients on ways to prevent and detect serious GI diseases. Our gastroenterologists are also experts at helping our patients overcome the embarrassment that so often accompanies discussing many GI symptoms.
Those who have never suffered GI issues are unaware of how painful some of these conditions can be. Because of the possibility of cancer, they can also be very frightening. That’s why you want the best trained, most caring specialists available to help pinpoint the cause of your distress and guide you compassionately through your treatment. And that’s when you want to turn to the gastroenterologists at The Medical Group of South Florida here in Jupiter.
