Gastroenterology

When you have symptoms, it's important to see a gastroenterologist as soon as possible. A gastroenterologist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions of the digestive system.

Some common symptoms that may require you to see a gastroenterologist include:

- Abdominal pain
- Diarrhea
-Rectal bleeding
- Rectal fullness or discomfort
- Weight loss
- Anemia

In addition, gastroenterologists are trained to diagnose and treat digestive conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gallstones, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), liver disease, pancreatitis and acidreflux disease.

It's also important to see a gastroenterologist if you are experiencing chronic pancreatitis, gastrointestinal cancer or unexplained weight loss.

If your symptoms are mild and not accompanied by significant discomfort, gastroenterologists typically recommend seeing them on an ongoing basis in order to monitor any changes in your condition. The gastroenterologistsmay recommend repeat colonoscopy screenings, gastroesophageal reflux screenings or blood tests to help monitor your condition.

It's also important to see gastroenterologists if you are at risk for developing any conditions that affect your digestive system, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). IBD is a chronic condition that affects the liningof the small intestine and large intestine.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, it's important to see a gastroenterologist as soon as possible. A gastroenterologist can help diagnose and treat your condition, which may improve your quality of life.


All pathologies of the digestive tract can be explored, diagnosed and treated at LMM. We take care of functional disorders (reflux, flatulence, constipation, ...) or organic disorders (hiatal hernia, hepatitis, ulcer, Crohn's disease, recto colitis, hemorrhoids, etc ...).

Our gastroenterologists have at their disposal the most modern techniques to explore and treat those pathologies.

Screening for cancer or digestive polyps.         

  • Digestive ultrasound         
  • High and low explorations by video-endoscope         
  • Therapeutic explorations; dilations, polypectomy, mucosectomy, digestive prostheses, ...         
  • Endoscopic Intra-gastric balloon placement          
  • Digestive ultrasound         
  • Functional digestive explorations using pH meter, anorectal manometer

Our gastroenterologist specialists can explore, diagnose and treat as needed the following digestive pathologies:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux and hiatus hernia         
  • Gastric and ulcerative pathologies         
  • Diseases of the bile ducts and pancreas        
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases: Crohn's disease, recto-colitis, ...         
  • Liver dåiseases         
  • Digestive parasitosis         
  • Medical proctology (hemorrhoids, fissures, fistulas ..)

Many digestive explorations can be done:

  • High and low explorations by high definition video-endoscope (gastroscopies, colonoscopies)
  • Therapeutic explorations (dilations, polypectomy, mucosectomy, digestive prostheses, ...)
  • Endoscopic intragastric balloon placement in the treatment of obesity
  • Digestive ultrasound
  • Functional digestive explorations (Ph-metry, anorectal manometry)
