UltrasoundSince 1983, our specialists have earned a reputation as leaders in gastrointestinal medicine and have played a direct role in advancing GI care in and around Houston. We were the first practice in the area to perform ERCP and the first to have developed a GI dedicated endoscopy center. We were also the first to bring to our community capsule endoscopy, Bravo® pH monitoring, endoscopic ultrasound, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, in-office Remicade infusion and band ligation of hemorrhoids.
Colon CancerGastroenterology Consultants is a leader in advanced, comprehensive gastrointestinal care. We specialize in up-to-date gastrointestinal care, which includes screening and treatment for colon cancer, heartburn and acid reflux, esophageal disorders and difficulty swallowing, peptic ulcers, H. pylori, gallstones and other gallbladder disorders, rectal bleeding and hemorrhoids, malabsorption and celiac disease, liver diseases – hepatitis C, hepatitis B, cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, hepatoma and liver cancer, abdominal pain, noncardiac chest pain, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, anemia, nausea and vomiting, gas and bloating and lactose intolerance
EndoscopyEndoscopy, which means “looking inside,” is a vital tool in the evaluation of gastrointestinal (GI) problems and in the detection of colorectal cancer and precancerous polyps. At its most basic, endoscopy is the direct visualization of the GI tract using specialized cameras.
GastroenterologyThere’s an opportunity for everyone in our vibrant team. Whether you’re in the clinic or in the office, there’s a place for you to work with Gastroenterology Consultants, PA - leaders in the field of Gastroenterology.
LesionsTo control bleeding from GI lesions or to debulk certain GI tumors, we can direct a jet of plasma though an endoscopic probe, then electrically heat the gas to coagulate the lesion. APC does not involve direct contact with the lesion and results in shallow coagulation of just a few millimeters, making it safe and useful for treating bleeding where the GI tract has thin walls.
ArthritisRemicade is a monoclonal antibody directed against tumor necrosis factor, a primary cause of inflammation in patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Infusion of Remicade typically takes two hours and is administered in the comfort and convenience of our infusion center, where patients sit restfully and can watch television, converse, read, knit, etc. Remicade is FDA-approved for acute and long-term treatment of IBD, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
Primary CareWe work closely with your primary-care physician in organizing your GI work-up and treatment. We send your doctor a detailed report of all consults and tests performed by us the same day.
ColonoscopyA colonoscopy is performed to identify and/or correct a problem in the colon. The test enables a diagnosis to be made and a specific treatment given. If a polyp is found, it can be removed at that time. If a bleeding site is identified, treatment can be administered to stop the bleeding. Other treatments may be given through the endoscope when necessary.
