Dr. Aman Singh is a female gastroenterologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive system - esophagus, stomach, colon, small intestine, pancreas, gallbladder - and liver, and provides gastrointestinal services including the following.
Colonoscopy (koh-luh-NAH-skuh-pee) lets Dr. Singh look inside your entire large intestine (another name for the colon), from the lowest part, the rectum, all the way up through the colon to the lower end of the small intestine, the terminal ileum.
Upper endoscopy enables Dr. Singh to look inside the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine). Upper endoscopy is also called EGD, which stands for esophagogastroduodenoscopy (eh-SAH-fuh-goh-GAS-troh-doo-AH-duh-NAH-skuh-pee).
Capsule endoscopy (en DOS-skuh-pee) enables Dr. Singh to look inside the small intestine. The procedure might be used to discover a source of bleeding.
Lactulose Breath Test
This test is performed using a kit at home. Breath samples are obtained before and after drinking a sugar called lactulose. The test tubes are returned for gas analysis to help determine if there is small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Smart Pill by BRAVO®
After ingestion, the SmartPill Capsule collects measurements of pressure, pH and temperature throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract. The SmartPill Data Receiver, which is worn on a belt clip or on a lanyard around the neck, captures and stores the test data collected by the Capsule.
Flexible sigmoidoscopy (SIG-moy-DAH-skuh-pee) enables Dr. Singh to look at the inside of the large intestine from the rectum through the last part of the colon, called the sigmoid or descending colon. Dr. Singh may use the procedure to find the cause of diarrhea, abdominal pain, or constipation. She may also use it to look for early signs of cancer in the descending colon and rectum and to monitor therapy in patients with inflammatory bowel disease including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
This procedure is performed to evaluate the way the esophagus contracts or moves. The test is indicated in patients that are having chest pain, a sense of food getting hung up upon swallowing or painful swallowing.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
Millions of Americans suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction and often the disease goes unidentified and untreated. Treatment and therapy is often multifaceted and can depend on the underlying causes and source of pain.
BRAVO® pH Monitor
If you are suffering from symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Dr. Singh may perform this test that measures and records the pH in your esophagus.
