Gastroenterology is a specialized field that focuses on diagnosing and treating disorders related to the digestive system. This encompasses various organs and structures such as the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, anus, liver, and gallbladder.

At AZZ Medical Associates, we are proud to have some of the top gastroenterologists in New Jersey as part of our team. These highly skilled and compassionate specialists provide expert care to patients with both acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term) gastrointestinal disorders.

While primary care serves as your gateway to overall health care, we understand the importance of addressing specific gastrointestinal concerns. Our board-certified doctors at AZZ Medical Associates offer patient-centered primary care services that prioritize your well-being. They take the time to listen to your concerns, carefully consider your wellness goals, and view each patient as an individual rather than just a number.

We provide a safe and compassionate environment where you can feel comfortable asking questions and discussing your health concerns. In addition to primary care services, our team includes specialized healthcare professionals such as gastroenterologists and sleep medicine experts. This allows us to offer comprehensive care and arrange consultations with the appropriate specialists to address your specific needs.

At AZZ Medical Associates, our mission is to provide exceptional healthcare that considers your physical and mental well-being. We are dedicated to partnering with you on your journey to better health, addressing your concerns, and helping you achieve your goals.

The experienced gastroenterology team at AZZ Medical Associates specializes in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions related to the digestive system. Some of the many gastrointestinal conditions we address include:

– Gallstones
– Hemorrhoids
– Celiac disease
– Colorectal cancer
– Lactose intolerance
– Diverticular disease
– Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
– Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
– Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

It’s important to note that IBD encompasses conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

When you visit AZZ Medical Associates for gastrointestinal concerns, our skilled gastroenterologists will conduct a comprehensive physical examination, carefully review your medical history, and inquire about your symptoms. In some cases, additional diagnostic tests such as bloodwork or imaging studies like X-rays or ultrasounds may be necessary to confirm a diagnosis.

Depending on your specific condition and needs, you may require a procedure such as a colonoscopy. This procedure involves the insertion of a flexible tube with a tiny camera (colonoscope) into your rectum to examine the colon. While we do not perform these procedures on-site, our knowledgeable doctors can refer you to a qualified specialist who can perform the necessary procedures.

At AZZ Medical Associates, we are committed to providing comprehensive care for your gastrointestinal health. Our team will work closely with you to accurately diagnose your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Gastrointestinal disorders can manifest with various symptoms, which can vary depending on the underlying cause. Here are some common symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disorders:

Indigestion:

Indigestion encompasses a range of issues, including dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), acid reflux (heartburn caused by stomach acid flowing back into the esophagus), abdominal pain, excessive belching, and bloating.

Stomach upsets:

Symptoms of stomach upsets may include nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and loss of appetite.

Rectal problems:

Gastrointestinal disorders can cause changes in bowel movements, such as diarrhea (loose stools) or constipation (hard, dry stools). Other symptoms related to rectal problems include rectal bleeding, pain in the lower abdomen, rectum, or anus, unusual stool coloration, and fecal incontinence (inability to control bowel movements).

In addition to these specific symptoms, individuals with gastrointestinal disorders may experience weakness, fatigue, and unexplained weight loss, which can be associated with certain conditions.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or have concerns about your gastrointestinal health, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and diagnosis. The team at AZZ Medical Associates is here to provide expert care and support to address your gastroenterological needs.

Improving your gastroenterology symptoms can often be achieved through lifestyle modifications and appropriate medical interventions. Here are some approaches that can help:

Dietary improvements:

Making changes to your diet, such as avoiding trigger foods, increasing fiber intake, and reducing fat and spicy foods, can have a positive impact on your gastroenterology symptoms.

Weight management:

If weight is a contributing factor to your symptoms, achieving a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise can provide significant relief.

Smoking cessation:

Quitting smoking can benefit your gastrointestinal health, as smoking is known to worsen certain conditions and increase the risk of developing gastrointestinal disorders.

Alcohol moderation:

Reducing or eliminating alcohol consumption can be beneficial, as excessive alcohol intake can exacerbate gastrointestinal symptoms and contribute to digestive system problems.

Regular exercise:

Engaging in regular physical activity can help improve gastrointestinal function and promote overall digestive health.

Depending on your specific condition, you may also require prescription medication or, in some cases, surgical interventions like gallbladder removal or bowel resection. The gastroenterology team at AZZ Medical Associates can provide expert guidance and develop a tailored treatment plan based on your individual needs.

To benefit from the expertise of the gastroenterology team, please call AZZ Medical Associates today or conveniently book an appointment online. They are dedicated to helping you manage your gastroenterology symptoms and improve your overall well-being.
