There are many gastrointestinal problems that can cause you to experience abdominal pain. Our gastroenterologists are the best in the area and have years of experience in diagnosing and treating abdominal pain.

Only a skilled gastroenterologist can go through the cornucopia of gastrointestinal issues that cause abdominal pain and find the root of it. Every patient is different, so there is no one size fits all diagnosis for abdominal pain. The area where this pain lingers, which is generally defined as the area between the groin and the chest, can be the cause of many different issues that could be affecting your digestive system. These include long term chronic diseases like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome. Pancreatitis, gastritis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, and ulcers are also things we look for while examining you. Abdominal pain may also be a symptom of cancer in the area. It is vital to get checked out immediately before a minor problem develops into an expensive medical emergency.
When you visit SouthWest Gastroenterology, we will evaluate your pain by asking a variety of questions about your abdominal pain, such as the severity, duration, and things that make it worse or better. Our doctors will also review your medical history, so please bring in a list of any regular medications you are currently taking, past surgeries, and medical conditions.
Depending on the nature of your pain and past medical history, we may want to follow up with some diagnostic tests and examinations to confirm a diagnosis. After the problem is identified, the gastroenterologists at SouthWest Gastroenterology will create a customized plan for your treatment. This treatment will be adjusted as needed depending on the results, but we will be with you every step of the way until you get better.
