Swallowing Difficulty

Swallowing Difficulty Management at Colon &
Digestive Health Specialists

Difficulty swallowing, medically known as dysphagia, can significantly impact your quality of life and nutritional health. At Colon & Digestive Health Specialists (CDH), we understand the complexities of swallowing disorders and are dedicated to providing expert care. Under the guidance of Dr. Shakoor, our board-certified gastroenterologist, we offer comprehensive evaluations and treatments for patients experiencing swallowing difficulties.

Understanding Swallowing Difficulty

Dysphagia can result from various conditions affecting the esophagus, including GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), esophageal strictures, or motility disorders. Symptoms may include pain while swallowing, the sensation of food being stuck in your throat, or coughing and choking during meals.

Our Approach to Managing Dysphagia

Thorough Assessment: We begin with a detailed evaluation of your symptoms, medical history, and a physical examination to understand the root cause of your swallowing difficulty.

Advanced Diagnostic Procedures: Utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic tools such as Upper Endoscopy (EGD) and Esophageal Manometry, we accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your dysphagia.

Tailored Treatment Plans: Depending on the diagnosis, treatment options may include dietary modifications, swallowing therapy, medication to treat associated conditions, or procedures like esophageal dilation to widen the esophagus and ease swallowing.

Continuous Support and Care: Our team is committed to providing ongoing care and support, ensuring you receive the necessary guidance for managing your condition effectively.
