New Gastroenterology Consultation
Follow Up Gastroenterology Consultation
Gastrointestinal conditions can cause incredible discomfort and dramatically impact your quality of life. The specialists at our gastroenterology clinic in Birmingham can run tests to diagnose your condition and create a bespoke treatment plan to manage it.
Our resident Gastroenterologist at our Birmingham clinic can help you manage a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions so that you can live unimpeded by their symptoms. We can help diagnose and manage:
Often referred to as IBD, this chronic condition typically manifests itself as Crohn’s Disease or ulcerative colitis. Common symptoms include:
Commonly known as IBS, irritable bowel syndrome is a common condition that can be disabling having a lasting impact on quality of life. Symptoms can occur infrequently or last a long time and include:
Functional Dyspepsia refers to recurring upset stomach symptoms. It is a common condition with irregularly occurring symptoms, including:
This condition involves your immune system attacking your tissue when you eat gluten. It is triggered by foods that include the grains wheat, barley and rye, often found in cakes, pasta, bread and cereals. Symptoms include both gut and general issues including skin complaints:
If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, our consultants are able to investigate further to try and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan:
This chronic condition occurs when bile acid, also referred to as bile salts, is not properly absorbed within the small intestines. These acids then make their way into the large intestine when they trigger diarrhoea. Symptoms include:
Hepatology is not a condition; it refers to the study and treatment of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas diseases. Our gastroenterologist covers Hepatology conditions:
This chronic immune system condition causes white blood cells to build up in the oesophagus, inflaming and damaging the tissue. Symptoms include:
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) causes stomach acid to leak into the oesophagus due to a weakened ring of muscle at the bottom of the organ. You may experience:
We offer a range of tests from our Birmingham clinic to diagnose conditions.
Faecal Immunochemical Tests (FIT) detect blood in a stool sample, as traces can indicate many conditions, including cancer.
You complete the test at home and, using the sterile packaging provided, post it to a lab for testing.
An endoscopy is an imaging test that involves passing a tube with a light and a camera through the body. For an upper GI endoscopy, this device is passed down through the oesophagus to examine the gullet, stomach and the initial part of the small intestine, known as the duodenum.
A lower GI endoscopy, often called a colonoscopy, involves inserting the device through the anal canal and rectum to examine the colon (large intestine).
These images can detect internal inflammation, polyps (growths in the bowel) and cancer in the intestine and diagnose conditions such as Coeliac disease.
A polyp is a protruding tissue growth in the colon or rectum. We can use a colonoscopy to inspect the polyp and remove it.
liver function tests examine the levels of enzymes, protein and other substances in blood samples to evaluate liver function and detect inflammation or damage. We can run further diagnostic tests to fully manage liver complaints.
We offer many treatment plans for gastrointestinal conditions. As many are chronic, we specialise in recommending lifestyle changes and medication to help you manage the symptoms so they do not stand in your way.
Our gastroenterologist may recommend:
All our gastroenterology services operate from our Birmingham clinic, and we have in-house specialists offering consultations, diagnosis and treatment.
