Ms. Mohika Gopal

I am a 37 year old working woman. I noticed that during work, I get anxiety and it often leads to gas and constipation. This becomes highly embarrassing. I talked to many specialists about it and was already on medication, however - no good changes happened. Then, I spoke to a specialist from Bajaj Finserv Health App and he listened to my problem with clarity. He also recommended me some dosage changes. This has greatly alleviated my problem of gas. I am now confident. Thank you Bajaj Finserv Health!

FAQs about gastroenterologist in chennai

Gastroenterologist in Chennai

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine that specialises in diagnosis, treatment and management of illnesses and conditions that affect the digestive tract. That said, it also concerns itself with the liver, bile duct, gallbladder and pancreas. Doctors who train in gastroenterology are known as gastroenterologists.
To understand when you should visit a gastroenterologist in Chennai, how gastroenterologists operate and how to find the best gastroenterology doctors in Chennai, keep reading.

What is the difference between a gastrologist and a gastroenterologist?

Gastrologists are typically found in the USA. While they sound similar to gastroenterologists, they aren’t recognised as medical doctors. Moreover, while a gastroenterologist diagnoses and treats all conditions that affect the digestive tract, gastrologists concern themselves only with conditions of the stomach. Often times, people use the two words interchangeably, but doing so is inaccurate.
If you or your loved ones are facing any discomfort and are considering visiting a doctor, ensure that it is the best gastroenterologist in Chennai or best pediatric gastroenterologist in Chennai, depending on the age of the patient. Also check the doctor’s credentials before you book an appointment.

What tests does a gastroenterologist recommend?

Depending on the symptoms that you are exhibiting, a gastroenterologist in Chennai is likely to ask for stool culture, barium meal test, MRI, CT scan, barium enema, ultrasound, barium swallow, colonoscopy, oesophageal PH monitoring, diagnostic endoscopy and liver function tests.

Do gastroenterologists do surgery?

While gastroenterologists perform non-surgical procedures such as endoscopies, sigmoidoscopies, biopsies and colonoscopies, they aren’t surgeons. Having said that, a gastroenterologist in Chennai can consult with surgeons and work closely with them to provide necessary information and inputs.

What are the symptoms of a gastrointestinal disorder?

There are several signs and symptoms of a gastrointestinal disorder. Should you or a family member experience any of the following, it’s time to book an appointment with a gastroenterology specialist in Chennai.
  • Bloody stool
  • Persistent stomach ache
  • Heartburn
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation
  • Food intolerance
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal pain/cramps
  • Swollen stomach
  • Bellybutton pain
  • Dark/black stool
  • Constant hunger pangs
  • Constantly feeling full

How does a gastroenterologist check your digestive tract?

A gastroenterology specialist in Chennai is likely to use certain ‘scopes’ or tests to determine the exact reason for your discomfort. Typically, these are the tests that a gastroenterologist performs.
Endoscopy: A gastroenterologist in Chennai will insert a thin, long tube into your body, through your mouth. A camera is attached to the end of the tube, and offers doctors a detailed picture of your upper digestive tract. An endoscopy can also be used to collect a sample for a biopsy.
Colonoscopy: In this procedure, a gastroenterologist will put a thin scope attached to a small camera through your rectum to your colon and large intestine. It helps doctors look for polyps, bleeding, inflammation and other such signs. If you approach a top gastroenterologist in Chennai with problems relating to passing faecal matter, for instance, he/she is most likely to prescribe a colonoscopy to identify the root cause.
Capsule endoscopy: In this procedure, you are required to eat a capsule with a video camera inside it. This camera takes images of your digestive system once you ingest it. It is usually prescribed if your small intestine needs to be evaluated closely. The best gastroenterology doctors in Chennai are also likely to recommend this test if they suspect that you suffer from Chron’s disease.

What can I expect as a gastroenterologist’s consultation fee in Chennai?

A top gastroenterologist in Chennai is likely to charge a minimum of Rs.500 as a consultation fee, with certain others charging up to Rs.1,500. You can check the doctor’s credentials, degrees, and reputation beforehand, as these determine the fee you will have to pay. Moreover, a gastroenterologist in Chennai who consults at the city’s top hospitals is likely to have a higher consultation fee than a doctor who has his own practice or consults at a polyclinic.
