Gastroenterology is the specialist branch of medicine and surgery in which the digestive system and its disorders are studied and treated. Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract are the focus of this speciality. Patients suffering from abdominal pain, bowel habit disturbances, nausea, weight loss, gallstones and rectal bleeding should all seek the advice of a specialist doctor in this field.
Within the Specialist Medical Clinic, these services are primarily provided by Mr David Deardon, our General Surgeon.
Your doctor will need to take a full history and perform a clinical examination. In some instances internal investigations such as endoscopy and colonoscopy are necessary to study the inside of the stomach, small bowel and colon, to make a full diagnosis and direct clinical management. These tests are carried out by the clinic's doctors both here at the Specialist Medical Clinic, and at our associated hospitals in Spain.
If you are suffering any of the symptoms above, please contact the clinic for an appointment.
