Gastrointestinal Surgery

Gastrointestinal Surgery in Manhattan

Providing an Understanding of Gastrointestinal Disease

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract starts at the mouth and ends at the anus. It includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, and anus, and is afflicted by multiple disease processes.

As board certified general and colon and rectal surgeons, we are experienced and well-trained to deal with a myriad of conditions that affect the GI tract. At Manhattan Surgical Associates, we treat a wide range of colorectal and gastrointestinal diseases and conditions. We understand that surgery is not the first answer or solution you turn to, but it may be the only way to treat your condition.

Symptoms of gastrointestinal disease are wide-ranging and variable, and may include:

  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Weight loss

Thorough Diagnosis Process in New York

In some cases, diseases of the GI tract produce no symptoms and you may not even be aware that you have problems. Other times, you may have visited the doctor numerous times complaining of your symptoms.

In order to determine whether surgery is appropriate, we will need to gather certain pieces of information, especially what type of treatments you have already attempted, if any. The first step in getting an accurate diagnosis is to complete a full history and physical examination. Other aspects of the examination that may be employed include endoscopy, ultrasound, and imaging, such as plain X-rays, CT scan, and MRI.

Completing an Effective Treatment Plan

After we have completed a thorough evaluation, the treatment plan will be tailored by our Manhattan gastrointestinal surgeons. Although there are many types of treatment available which may include medication, we specialize in providing surgical procedures which will provide you with long-term relief.
