Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Gastrointestinal Bleeding Management at Colon & Digestive Health Specialists

Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a serious condition that requires prompt and expert care. At Colon & Digestive Health Specialists (CDH), we are committed to providing advanced diagnostic and treatment services for patients experiencing GI bleeding. Under the leadership of Dr. Shakoor, a board-certified gastroenterologist with extensive experience in digestive health, our team is equipped to manage both acute and chronic cases of gastrointestinal bleeding.

Understanding Gastrointestinal Bleeding

GI bleeding can originate from anywhere in the digestive tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, and anus. Symptoms may include visible blood in the stool or vomit, dark tarry stools, and anemia, which can lead to weakness and fatigue.

Our GI Bleeding Management Services

Comprehensive Evaluation: We start with a thorough assessment to determine the source and severity of the bleeding. This includes reviewing your medical history, symptoms, and any medications that might contribute to bleeding.

Advanced Diagnostic Techniques: Our clinic is equipped with the latest technology for diagnosing GI bleeding, including endoscopy, colonoscopy, and imaging studies. These tools help us pinpoint the exact location and cause of bleeding.

Personalized Treatment Plans: Treatment depends on the cause and severity of the bleeding and may include medication, endoscopic procedures to stop the bleeding, or surgery in more severe cases. Our goal is to not only manage the current episode but also to prevent future occurrences.

Ongoing Support and Education: We provide you with the information and support needed to understand your condition and manage your health effectively, including dietary and lifestyle modifications.
