Cirrhosis of the Liver
This condition is a gradual and progressive destruction of tissue in the liver. Over time, healthy tissue is replaced by scar tissue, resulting in a loss of liver function.


Peptic Ulcers
This condition occurs when a portion of the lining in the stomach or duodenum erodes, sometimes causing pain and irritation. "Peptic" refers to pepsin, a stomach enzyme that breaks down proteins.


Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
This condition describes disorders that can cause the intestines to become irritated and swollen. Inflammatory bowel disease typically refers to one of two diseases: Ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease.


Colonoscopy
This procedure is used to examine the large intestine for inflammation, ulcers, or abnormal growths such as cancer. The physician uses a colonoscope - a small, lighted camera inside a soft, flexible tube. The procedure usually lasts from 30 minutes to an hour.


Colon Polypectomy
This procedure is used to remove abnormal growths, called polyps, from the colon. Polyps are usually benign, but some can develop into cancer. The physician uses a colonoscope, a small, lighted camera inside a soft, flexible tube, which is inserted into the rectum. The procedure usually lasts from 30 minutes to an hour.
