Patient testimonials

Here’s what our patients have to say about our services..

My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!


Pooja Sharma

Kanpur

I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.


Rahul Trivedi

I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.


Udit Kumar

Kanpur

I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!

Who is a Gastroenterologist?

A Gastroenter­ologist or Gastrology Specialist or Gastrology Doctor is a specialist physician with specific expertise in managing diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intes­tine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. Because of the frequent link between gastrointestinal symptoms and systemic disorders, gastrology doctors frequently work with specialists in other areas of medicine.

What problems does a gastroenterologist deal with?

Some of the most common disorders treated by a gastrology specialist are:

  • Acid reflux
  • GERD or Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Jaundice
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Pancreatitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Peptic Ulcers
What procedures can a Gastroenterologist do?

Because gastrology covers such a wide range of health conditions, there also is a wide range of tests and procedures performed in patients. However, gastrology doctors don’t perform surgery. Here are some of the more common tests performed by gastroenterologists:

  • ERCP, EUS
  • Endoscopy
  • MRI
  • Liver Biopsy
  • Colonoscopy
What are the most common signs and symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders?

You should visit a gastrology doctor near you if you’re experiencing any of these common symptoms:

  • Rectal bleeding
  • Bowel movement urges that are hard to control
  • Diarrhoea
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Pale-coloured stools
  • Dark urine
  • Heartburn (acid reflux)
  • Abdominal pain or bloating
  • Excessive gas or belching
  • Esophageal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite or weight
What is an Endoscopy? For what conditions should I go for an Endoscopy?

In this procedure, the doctor is able to see the inside lining of your digestive tract by using a fiber-optic tube with a tiny TV camera attached at the end. The Gastrology doctor may recommend endoscopy if you are experiencing signs and symptoms including:

  • Chronic nausea and vomiting
  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
