COLONOSCOPIES AND EGDs
Your gastrointestinal and colon health is very important to us. Many of the disease associated with the digestive tract are preventable if the right steps are taken.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related death but is the most preventable. Anyone over the age of 50 should have a screening colonoscopy or at the age of 40 if they have a family history of colorectal cancer. Other factors that increase the likelihood of developing cancer are obesity, a high fat and high meat based diet, tobacco use, excessive alcohol, and low levels of vitamin D. Symptoms of colon cancer are rectal bleeding, change in stool color, change in bowel habits, abdomen pain, and iron deficiency anemia.
An EGD is an upper scope that views the esophagus and stomach to help diagnose and treat, ulcers and gastritis, tumors of the stomach or esophagus, difficulty swallowing, upper abdominal pain or indigestion, intestinal bleeding, esophagitis and heartburn, and Celiac disease.
CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells by using controlled freezing to eliminate the fat cells under the skin. The dead fat cells are eliminated and naturally disposed of by the body.
Many of us have stubborn fat that does not seem to go away despite exercising and eating right; Dr. Escobar can help you get rid of that fat! Once treated, those destroyed fat cells cannot grow back which means you will see long lasting effects!
