Problems of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract
esophagus, stomach and small and large intestine are quite
common. Patients with GI problems often experience pain, either
acute or that develops over longer periods of time. In either case,
its important to get appropriate care, as even minor symptoms
can indicate compound health issues.
Drs. Mourani and Tarakji have the skill and training
to accurately diagnose problems of the GI tract, from acid reflux
disease to colon cancer. If surgery is required, they will immediately
refer you to a board-certified surgeon to correct your problem and
get you the relief you want.
Gallstones are common problems at all ages. The stones
may not cause any symptoms, but when they do, patients might experience
nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain and jaundice.
While many gallstones dont require surgical
removal, those that do warrant the knowledge and expertise of Drs.
Mourani and Tarakji. If a stone passes into bile channels, they
are able to remove it endoscopically. If they determine that surgery
is needed, they will promptly refer you to a surgeon who specializes
in gallbladder removal. Todays surgical methods require only
tiny incisions, which means less pain and a rapid recovery time.
