Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS, is a common medical condition diagnosed by the best in class NYC IBS doctor that targets your intestines. IBS can cause abdominal pain, gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhea and/or constipation. IBS symptoms can often times be accompanied by and overlap with other symptoms and be difficult to identify as the cause of your symptoms.

IBS is extremely prevalent.  In the United States, it is estimated that 10 to 15 percent of the adult population suffers from IBS symptoms, yet only 5 to 7 percent of adults have been diagnosed with the disease. Patients should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan in order to exclude an underlying serious illness or condition.  Blood work, stools studies, breath tests and other diagnostic tests include endoscopy or colonoscopy may need to be performed to secure a proper diagnosis depending on your case.

Our specialists investigate the cause of IBS symptoms in each patient and find the best treatments that may work for them

Other symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome that the gastroenterologist’s patients typically have include bloating and the feeling of not having emptied the bowels completely, so needing to return to the toilet shortly after a bowel action. Many people with IBS find that their symptoms are made worse by stress and by certain foods. If you have IBS, your large intestine may be more sensitive to stimulation, so it can spasm for no apparent reason, causing the uncomfortable symptoms mentioned above. IBS can be treated by our gastroenterologists (or at least comfortably controlled) with dietary, lifestyle changes,  medications and other modalities in many cases after a diagnosis is made.
