What We Do
At the Center for GI Health, patients come first. Dr. Ari Nowain – a double-board certified, award-winning gastroenterologist – delivers comprehensive, innovative care for adults suffering from gastrointestinal illnesses in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Dr. Ari Nowain and his team take a personalized approach, spending significant time with each patient and listening to their concerns and symptoms in an effort to make a more accurate diagnosis – and provide the most
effective form of treatment.
Colon cancer occurs in 1 out of every 20 people in the US. It is completely preventable by doing a colonoscopy to remove colon polyps. The Center for GI Health performs colonoscopies for adults to prevent colon cancer – the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. A colonoscopy identifies the presence of pre-cancerous polyps in the colon, and removes them during the procedure.
The Center for GI Health performs upper endoscopies – a procedure under sedation in which a flexible camera is inserted through the mouth to examine the esophagus, stomach, and part of the small intestine – to identify the cause of chronic gastrointestinal symptoms including heartburn, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting and diarrhea. An upper endoscopy can diagnose certain GI conditions like abnormal bleeding and cancerous tissues or polyps.
Hemorrhoids can be painful – but removing them doesn’t have to be. At the Center for GI Health, we offer a brief and painless technique to eliminate internal hemorrhoids. The CRH O’Regan hemorrhoid band litigation procedure uses gentle suction to hold the hemorrhoid in place, then places a small rubber band around the tissue away from the nerve line and just above the hemorrhoid, cutting off the blood supply and causing the hemorrhoid to fall off in 24-48 hours.
Third Eye® is a revolutionary advancement in colonoscopy technology. Standard colonoscopies show only what is in front of the colonoscope – and can miss pre-cancerous polyps hidden behind the folds of the colon. The Third Eye Panoramic device allows for a more complete examination, where the physician to look both forward and backward – increasing the likelihood of detecting and removing polyps.Learn MORE
The PillCam capsule endoscopy is a comfortable and non-invasive procedure used to detect and diagnose disorders of the small intestine – including small bowel tumors, Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease, peptic ulcers and intestinal bleeding and most commonly iron deficiency anemia. The patient simply swallows a small pill fitted with a camera, which transmits images as it moves through the small intestine.Learn MORE
