Colon Cancer

Due to the high mortality associated with colon cancer and the effectiveness of colonoscopy in detecting early lesions, it has become routine to screen adults if you are:

50 years of age or older
Have a personal or family history of colorectal cancer, polyps, or inflammatory bowel disease
Have any gastrointestinal symptoms, regardless of age.

Symptoms Include:

  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Blood in the stool
  • Narrowing of the stool
  • General abdominal discomfort
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Chronic fatigue

Colonoscopy

During a colonoscopy, the doctor can cauterize suspicious lesions, acquire samples to test for colon cancer and remove polyps (small growths in the colon that can turn into cancerous tumors or colorectal cancer). Colon cancer is completely preventable if you get your regular checkups. Contact us today for more information on our colonoscopy services.

Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn’s

Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s are both inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). They can cause diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, and fatigue. Ulcerative colitis affects only the inner lining of the colon, while Crohn’s can affect the entire wall as well as the entire digestive tract. Both of these diseases come in cycles. Treatments for these diseases include Aminosalicylates (5-ASAs), steroids, immunosuppresants, and biologic therapy (Remicade).

About Remicade Treament

Remicade is an infusion that works with the body’s immune system to target inflammation in your digestive tract. It has been proven to maintain remission, and reduce or completely eliminate symptoms. Please ask Dr. Rodriguez about this treatment if you have been diagnosed with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis. He can discuss treatment options that best suit your individual needs. Contact us today for more information on Remicade Treatment.
