Digestive diseases may cause heartburn, abdominal pain or bloating. They are sometimes caused by serious conditions like stomach, pancreas or colon cancers, infections (eg Helicobacter pylori) and inflammation of the digestive tract. However, more commonly, they are caused by digestive function disorders like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The management of digestive diseases involves excluding serious conditions and controlling symptoms. This may require investigations, which include an endoscopy and scans of the digestive organs. In severe cases, evaluations such as esophageal reflux studies, hydrogen breath tests and gastrointestinal motility tests may help to guide treatment.
We offer a comprehensive service including:
Endoscopy (Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy)
Helicobacter pylori breath test
Hydrogen breath test
Wireless esophageal reflux study
Gastrointestinal motility capsule
While digestive diseases are common, their treatment can be complex, especially in cases that do not respond to standard treatment. Our doctors have more than 10 years of clinical experience in managing complex digestive diseases in tertiary referral hospitals. They also have extensive research and teaching experience in treating digestive diseases, with a strong focus on safety and delivering research-proven treatments.
We understand that every patient is unique, so tests and treatments will be carefully selected and individualised to provide the quality of care for you. Contact us for more information.
