Procedures for Gastric Ulcer treatments in Dubai

At Emirates Hospitals Group, we provide advanced procedures to treat gastric ulcers effectively. Our approach includes endoscopic procedures such as gastroscopy to visualize and diagnose ulcers accurately. Treatment options may involve medications to reduce stomach acid production and antibiotics to eradicate H. pylori bacteria, a common cause of ulcers. In severe cases, surgical intervention may be recommended to repair ulcers or remove affected tissue.

  • Persistent abdominal pain, often described as burning or gnawing.
  • Indigestion, bloating, or feeling overly full after meals.
  • Nausea and vomiting, sometimes with blood.

  • Dark, tarry stools due to bleeding ulcers.

Prompt recognition of these symptoms is crucial for early intervention and effective treatment by our specialists at Emirates Hospitals Group in Dubai.
