Abdominal pain and other stomach conditions affect most people at one point or another. In most cases, stomach pain is short lived and will go away on its own. But it can sometimes be linked to more chronic and severe conditions.
WakeMed’s gastroenterologists have the expertise and training to accurately diagnose stomach pain and conditions—from common to rare, and chronic to acute.
If you have chronic stomach pain that doesn’t seem to be getting better, call your doctor.
When evaluating patients, our gastroenterologists start by taking a detailed patient history and a review of symptoms.
Treatment varies depending on the specific stomach condition. Some, like viral gastroenteritis, may require a wait and see approach. Others respond well to medication, and over-the-counter medication may be recommended first. If that doesn’t work, our physicians may prescribe prescription medication. Some conditions, like appendicitis and gallstones, may require surgical treatment.
Many stomach conditions can be impacted both positively and negative by diet, and we offer our patients nutrition counseling to help them manage their conditions and make smart nutritional choices.
If you or someone you care for has stomach pain that’s impacting your quality of life, we encourage you to make an appointment with one of WakeMed Cary Hospital's experienced gastroenterologists.
