  • Irritable bowel syndrome

    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)  is extremely common, with up to 20% of our population suffering from it.  It's key features are a change in bowel habit from normal associated with abdominal pain or discomfort. Our doctors are expert in IBS treatment, and can give a experienced diagnosis and offer you therapy and support for your symptoms. To find out more about IBS click here.

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

    Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)  comprises ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. In ulcerative colitis (UC) there is inflammation of the large bowel, whereas Crohn's disease may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms can include diarrhoea, abdominal pains and rectal bleeding. Symptoms can often be disabling, meaning that finding the right specialist to treat and support you is important. Our doctors are expert in diagnosis and treatment of IBD. To find out more about IBD click here.

  • Heartburn

    Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a very common condition. It occurs when excess stomach acid moves up from the stomach into the oesophagus (gullet). The most common symptoms are heartburn (burning sensation behind the breastbone) and regurgitation (an unpleasant sensation of material moving upwards in the chest), but it can cause a number of other problems such as hoarse voice, cough, sore throat. Our doctors are expert in GORD diagnosis and treatment and can offer the most up-to-date management. Read more about GORD here.

  • Swallowing problems

    Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) is a troublesome symptom that can have many causes. If you have difficulty swallowing it is important to consult a doctor to rule out a serious condition (such as oesophageal cancer). However, most cases are not caused by cancer, but require a careful evaluation as there are a number of possible causes. Our doctors are expert in dysphagia and can offer experienced and skilful management of your swallowing problems. Click here to learn more about difficulty swallowing.

  • Dyspepsia and ulcer disease

    Dyspepsia describes a collection of symptoms originating from the upper gastrointestinal tract (particularly the stomach). Symptoms include upper abdominal pain and discomfort, nausea, and upper abdominal bloating. There are a number of causes including the presence of a bacteria in the stomach (Helicobacter pylori), and stomach and duodenal ulcers. Our doctors are expert in dyspepsia and ulcer disease and would be delighted to see you to offer the best diagnosis and treatment. Click here to learn more about dyspepsia and ulcer disease.

  • Barrett's oesophagus

    Barrett's oesophagus is a condition where gastro-oesophageal reflux causes a change in the cell type in the lower oesophagus (the cells change to resemble those of the stomach). The importance of Barrett's oesophagus is that it carries a small but increased risk of oesophageal cancer. It requires careful evaluation by endoscopy, and in some cases it can be removed by a process called radio-frequency ablation. Our doctors are expert in Barrett's oesophagus and can offer diagnosis, advice and treatment. Click here to learn more about Barrett's oesophagus.

  • Alcohol-related liver disease

    Alcohol-related liver disease is a very common problem in society, and it is important to get expert help early. Whether you are concerned about damage to your liver from alcohol and want it checked, or if you have established alcohol-related liver problems, our doctors at Gastroenterology at Canary Wharf can give you the specialist guidance you need.

  • Non-alcohol related fatty liver disease (NAFLD)

    Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a growing problem in society. As more people are troubled by obesity and diabetes, more liver disease is being diagnosed as a result. Early investigation and treatment is key to preventing long term harm. The doctors at Gastroenterology at Canary Wharf  offer expert testing and treatment for NAFLD.

  • Viral hepatitis

    Chronic viral hepatitis (B and C) is more common than you may think, but effective treatment can be offered. The doctors at Gastroenterology at Canary Wharf can offer expert assessment for chronic hepatitis, and can use the most up to date treatments available
