Dr. Mahesh Goenka

He diagnoses, treats, and cares for people with a range of gut-related illnesses. These include long-term conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease.

Adults and children see him for gut-related symptoms or diseases, such as trouble eating, heartburn, stomachache, feeling sick to their stomach or throwing up, yellowing of the skin, etc. Starting at age 50, people with an average risk for colon, rectal cancer may see Dr. Mahesh Goenka for routine colonoscopies to check for symptoms of cancer.


What measures do Gastroenterologists execute?

Gastroenterologists carry out numerous measures to diagnose, cure, and control medical situations. These measures comprise of:

  • Endoscopy: In endoscopy, a gastroenterologist uses a camera that attributes to a long, thin tube called an endoscope to look inside the patient’s body. The expert incorporates the endoscope through the mouth, down the throat, and into the esophagus. It sends images back to a screen for supervising. A gastroenterologist could carry out an endoscopy to examine warning signs such as continuous heartburn, sickness, and vomiting, bleeding, difficulties with swallowing, and inexplicable weight loss.


  • Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy: These methods are analogous to an endoscopy, but they need the gastroenterologist to inject the tube into the rectum, instead, then the mouth. A gastroenterologist can see the complete colon and rectum for the duration of a colonoscopy. A sigmoidoscopy only permits them to inspect the rectum and lower colon. During these procedures, gastroenterologists could be considered for early signs of colon or rectum cancer, causes of bowel habit changes, causes of specific symptoms, such as rectal bleeding, stomachache, or inexplicable weight loss.
  • Polypectomy: During a polypectomy, a gastroenterologist will get rid of one or more polyps from the lining of the bowel. The gastroenterologist removes the polyps by using an electric current to burn them off during a colonoscopy.


  • Esophageal expansion: Throughout esophageal dilation, a gastroenterologist will stretch out a narrowed area of the esophagus. Acid reflux can scar this muscular tube, narrow it, and make it hard for a person to consume food. Layers of excess tissue, cancer of the esophagus, and scarring from radiation treatment can all lead to the same problem. The gastroenterologist may demure the person for the procedure. Alternatively, they may apply a local anesthetic spray to the back of the person’s throat.


A gastroenterologist is a medicinal professional who focuses on infections of the digestive system and digestive tract. A doctor might describe somebody to a gastroenterologist if they have symptoms that indicate a problem with the digestive system. Gastroenterologists can identify, heal, and handle a broad range of gut-associated conditions.
