OVERVIEW

Arthritis is a prevalent ailment characterized by joint pain and inflammation.

More than 10 million people in the United Kingdom suffer from arthritis or other joint-related illnesses.

People of all ages, including children, are affected by arthritis.

Arthritis has several  types.

The two most freQquent kinds of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, which affects approximately 9 million individuals in the UK, is the most common type of arthritis.

 

People in their mid-40s and older are more likely to develop it.

 

Women and persons with a family history of the disease are more likely to develop it.

 

However, it can happen at any age as a result of an injury or be linked to other joint-related diseases like gout or rheumatoid arthritis.

 

The smooth cartilage lining of the joint is first impacted by osteoarthritis. This makes mobility more difficult than usual, resulting in stiffness and pain.

 

The tendons and ligaments have to work harder after the cartilage lining starts to roughen and thin out.

 

This can result in swelling and the production of osteophytes, which are bony spurs.

Severe cartilage loss can cause bone to push on bone, changing the form of the joint and pulling the bones out of their natural positions.

 

The following joints are the most typically affected:

 

hands 

spine 

knees

i can treat those conditions:

  1. Bleeding in the stomach
  2. GI cancer anaemia is a disorder in which the blood’s haemoglobin (an oxygen-carrying pigment) levels are below normal.
  3. Crohn’s disease (inflammation of the digestive tract lining), ulcerative colitis are examples of inflammatory bowel disease (inflammation and ulceration of the lining of the rectum and colon)
  4. Jaundice is a yellowing of the skin caused by an excess of bilirubin in the blood and tissues.
  5. Alcoholic liver disease, viral hepatitis (liver inflammation induced by a virus), and autoimmune liver disease (where the body attacks its own cells)
  6. Inflammation of the diverticula is known as diverticulitis.

Common procedures

These include:

  • diagnostic and therapeutic upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy
  • small bowel endoscopy
  • endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) – an endoscopic technique mainly used to diagnose and treat bile duct and pancreatic duct conditions
  • endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)
  • intestinal and liver biopsy
  • paracentesis (puncture of the wall of a cavity using a hollow needle)
  • insertion of parenteral nutrition line (intravenous feeding lines)
  • planning and aftercare of patients undergoing liver transplant

Sub-specialties

Many gastroenterologists develop sub-specialty interests such as:

  • hepatology (diseases of the liver)
  • pancreaticobiliary diseases of the pancreas and biliary system),
  • inflammatory bowel disease
  • functional bowel disease
  • tropical diseases
  • gastrointestinal cancer and its prevention
  • endoscopic surveillance
  • upper GI disease (diseases of the oespahagus and stomach)
  • small bowel disease
  • pancreatic disease
  • transplantation
  • medico legal issues in medicine
  • clinical pharmacology
  • inherited cancer syndromes
  • clinical nutrition
