Peptic Ulcer Disease Treatment at Florida Medical Clinic
Peptic ulcer disease usually improves with home treatment, but some patients experience persistent symptoms that require professional medical attention. At Florida Medical Clinic, we can help patients find effective ways to manage pain, bloating, nausea, and other related gastrointestinal symptoms caused by peptic ulcer disease.
Most patients who turn to Florida Medical Clinic for peptic ulcer disease treatment find the relief they need from conservative, nonsurgical treatments. For instance, depending on the specifics of a particular patient’s diagnosis, our experienced gastroenterologists may recommend a combination of medications to:
- Limit acid production
- Provide a protective coating for the stomach and intestines
- Destroy bacterial infections
We also offer nutritional counseling to patients with peptic ulcer disease. While dietary changes don’t heal ulcers, they can limit the amount of irritation that occurs, in turn helping alleviate painful symptoms. For instance, avoiding spicy foods, limiting alcohol intake, and eating smaller meals can be beneficial for individuals with peptic ulcers. These strategies, combined with other lifestyle changes, can also help reduce the likelihood of developing additional ulcers in the future.
In some situations, peptic ulcer disease might not improve with conservative treatment, at which point surgery might become an option. For patients who do need surgery, the team at Florida Medical Clinic can help determine which procedure would be most appropriate. For instance, a gastrectomy (a procedure in which part of the stomach is removed) might be recommended, or a pyloroplasty (a procedure to widen the opening of the bottom of the stomach) may be suggested instead. At Florida Medical Clinic, we’ll help each patient explore his or her treatment options and make the most informed decision possible.
For more information about our gastroenterology team or to request a consultation with one of our experienced physicians, contact Florida Medical Clinic today. We’ll connect you with a peptic ulcer disease treatment specialist near you.
