The NYC Gastroenterologist performs complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to treat conditions such as abdominal pain, peptic ulcers, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, hemorrhoids, rectal bleeding and celiac disease.
The most frequent reasons that patients from throughout NYC visit Manhattan Gastroenterology include:
- Colonoscopy: A colonoscopy is a medical outpatient procedure that allows the gastroenterologist to visually examine the lining of your large intestine from the inside. A colonoscopy is typically performed to test for colon cancer and to check for pre-cancerous polyps, which can be removed at the same time by the NYC gastroenterologist.
- GERD & Heartburn: Gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly referred to as GERD, is a medical condition in which the acidic juices in your stomach splash back into your esophagus, irritating the esophageal lining. This burning sensation is referred to as heartburn.
- Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are veins around the anus or lower rectum that have become swollen and inflamed and are extremely common in men and women. Hemorrhoids can happen either inside the anus or under the skin around the anus. As a trained gastroenterologist, Dr. Khodadadian is familiar with the signs and treatment options of hemorrhoids including laser hemorrhoid removal and hemorrhoidal banding. While there are many techniques for eliminating hemorrhoids, infrared coagulation (or IRC) has been shown to be effective and fast acting. Dr. Khodadadian has completed special training in applying IRC and has treated countless patients successfully.
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a disorder characterized most commonly by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea.
- Upper Endoscopy: Upper endoscopy allows gastroenterologists to find the source of symptoms such as upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or difficulty swallowing. It’s also the best test to find the cause of bleeding from your upper gastrointestinal tract. Upper endoscopy is more accurate than X-rays for detecting inflammation, ulcers and tumors of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.
