At the office of Tomas Birriel MD, we focus on helping patients understand their conditions and working toward an effective treatment plan. We understand that many gastrointestinal issues are uncomfortable and limit your daily activities, and we are committed to helping you improve your lifestyle by improving your health.
Gastrointestinal disease can involve the esophagus, stomach, large intestine, small intestine, and rectum, as well as accessory organs such as the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. Well-known digestive diseases include:
- Acid reflux & heartburn
- Celiac Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Fatty Liver
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Lactose intolerance
Many gastrointestinal diseases are caused by abnormalities in the body’s natural systems. Some problems result from lifestyle choices, such as low-fiber diets, stress, certain medications, pregnancy, or changes in daily routine.
Dr. Tomas Birriel can help you diagnose the cause of your condition and create a customized treatment plan. Depending on the nature and severity of your gastrointestinal disease, our general surgeon may recommend a surgical procedure, change in diet or lifestyle, or medication. Instead of offering “cookie cutter” treatments, we assess your personal situation and suggest only the treatments that we feel are best for you. We encourage you to learn more about managing your gastrointestinal disease in Morgan City, Louisiana, by contacting our office at 985-384-7173 today.
