What are The Different GI Procedures Performed in The United Arab Emirates?

The hospitals and clinics in the UAE are well-facilitated with advanced treatment facilities to treat several gastrointestinal procedures. Although there are several GI procedures performed in UAE hospitals, some of them are described below:

  • Upper GI Endoscopy: It is an outpatient procedure in which the upper GI tract disorders are diagnosed and treated. The doctor inserts a long, thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera and light at the end.
  • Colon Cancer Screening: In this procedure, the doctor inserts a colonoscope, a long and flexible tube to view the large intestine. It is used for diagnostic and screening purposes. 
  •  Capsule Endoscopy: In this procedure, the doctor uses a tiny, wireless camera to view the entire gastrointestinal tract.
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound: It is a minimally invasive procedure in which the doctor uses a combination of an endoscope, a flexible tube-like device with an attached light source, and ultrasound imaging to get a view of the entire gastrointestinal tract and its surrounding tissues as well as organs.
  • Endoanal and Endorectal Ultrasound: This test helps evaluate the muscles of the anus to detect abnormalities. 

Other than these procedures, there are several GI procedures that are being performed in hospitals and clinics in the UAE. The specific type of procedure depends on the patient’s medical condition. 

What are The Signs and Symptoms of Consulting a Gastroenterologist?

If you experience unusual digestive problems or discomfort in your digestive tract, it is advisable not to ignore them. Following are some signs when you should consult a gastroenterologist:

  • Trouble Swallowing: If you face persistent difficulty while swallowing, lumps in your throat, frequent throat pain or swelling, then it could signify a serious problem, and it is time to see a gastroenterologist.
  • Frequent Heartburn: Heartburn occurs in the center of the chest when the stomach acid hits back in the esophagus. Heartburn is followed by shortness of breath, dizziness, trouble swallowing, and bloody bowel movements. If you experience such conditions, consult a gastroenterologist ASAP.
  • Abdominal Bleeding: It is a symptom of a dysfunctional GI tract. It is often followed by black/tarry stool, blood in vomit, abdominal cramps, paleness, dizziness, restlessness, and shortness of breath.
  • Constipation: When your stools are hard, you experience painful bowel movements, or you are unable to pass the bowels properly, then it is time to consult a gastroenterologist. Constipation usually occurs when you don’t hydrate properly, don’t follow a workout routine, and there is more intake of laxatives, antidepressants, dairy products, or junk food. It usually occurs when there is more than a three-day gap between your bowel movements. When your feces become drier and harder, then it’s time to consult a gastroenterologist. 

Unexplained weight loss, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, excessive gas, light-colored stool, yellowish skin & eyes, and peptic ulcer are other signs that need proper diagnosis and treatment. 

How Do I Know if a Gastroenterologist is Qualified and Experienced?

If you experience serious digestive issues, your primary physician may recommend consulting a gastroenterologist. 

Gastroenterologists specialize in treating disorders related to the GI tract, such as the esophagus, gallbladder, stomach, pancreas, small intestine, colon, and bile ducts. 

Then some gastroenterologists treat motility disorders that cause a lack of motion anywhere along your GI tract.

You can use the following tips to find the appropriate gastroenterologist for your medical needs:

  • Referrals & Reviews: You can ask your general physician to recommend a gastroenterologist with whom your physician has worked well before. You can also ask your family, friends, or coworkers for referrals. 
  • Look at Doctor Profile Details: When you search for a gastroenterologist, it is important to look at the doctor’s valuable information, such as education, training, and board certification. Also, look at which languages the doctor is proficient in and their expertise. For example, if you have motility disorders and are looking for a gastroenterologist to treat them, you might check if they have mentioned that in their expertise.
  • Doctor’s Experience: When it comes to treating your digestive disorder with a surgical procedure, then look for a doctor who has performed the maximum number of successful surgeries. You can also ask the doctor how many patients he/she has treated with the same condition. 
  • Communication Style: During consultations, discuss your problems and your treatment preferences. You would want a doctor who listens to you gently and explains the procedures to you calmly. 

How can I Ensure I Receive The Best Care for my Gastrointestinal Condition?

If you want the best treatment and care for your gastrointestinal condition, it is important to follow the steps instructed below:

  • Experienced, Well-Qualified Gastroenterologist: You need to find a gastroenterologist with expertise in treating your condition. You can also ask your general physician, family, friends, or coworkers for recommendations for a good gastroenterologist.
  • Ask Questions: Prepare a list of questions before your appointment. Also, don’t hesitate to ask about your condition, relevant treatment options, and side effects. Moreover, you need to discuss the risks and benefits of medications that your doctor may prescribe.
  • Symptom Journal: Keep track of your symptoms, for example, how and when they do occur and their severity. This may be helpful for your doctor in monitoring your condition and proposing a treatment plan for you.
  • Honest & Straightforward Discussion With Your Doctor: It is advisable to discuss your symptoms with your healthcare advisor, including abdominal pain, bowel movements, and overall condition. This helps in accurate diagnosis and preparing an appropriate treatment plan. 
  • Follow Your Treatment Plan: It is better to follow your treatment plan properly, including diet, medications, and procedures, for better outcomes.
  • Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions Thoroughly: It is important to follow your specialist’s instructions, including dietary changes, lifestyle changes, or medications. Also, if you have any questions, feel free to ask your doctor or their team.
  • Stay Updated: You need to stay updated regarding the latest development in your health condition. You can also join support groups and forums to connect with people with similar health experiences. 
  • Get a Second Opinion: Suppose you are not satisfied with your doctor’s treatment plan; you can look for secondary options that can offer you additional information and help you make an informed decision about your health. 

How Much Does it Cost to See a Gastroenterologist in the United Arab Emirates?

The cost of consulting a gastroenterologist in the United Arab Emirates depends on various factors, such as the location of the hospital, the gastroenterologist’s experience, and the severity of the medical condition. 

Additional medical services such as diagnostic tests, MRI scans, and blood tests add significantly to the entire cost of treatment. However, some insurance policies may cover the cost of the consultation. Hence, you should check with your insurance provider about what medical services are covered in your policy.
