Cancer Prevention & Screening

Cancer Prevention Beverly Hills

Prevention is the best way to promote health. Early detection saves lives. Many disorders of the digestive tract such as cancers of the colon, rectum and esophagus are easily preventable and may be curable if diagnosed early. For example, removing colon polyps by colonoscopy reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Treatment of acid reflux (GERD) and proper evaluation by an upper endoscopy can decrease the risk of esophageal cancer. Eradicating bacteria called H. pylori can reduce the risk of gastric cancer. As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Mehdizadeh specializes in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of common and rare gastrointestinal cancers.
Diet and environment are important in our overall health and wellbeing and especially in the health of our digestive system.
Dr. Mehdizadeh has additional expertise in nutrition and weight management. Our goal is to educate patients about nutrition and lifestyle because the food we eat can affect our health later in life.
At Beverly Hills Digestive Care, we offer a comprehensive gastrointestinal cancer screening and prevention program which includes education, lifestyle modification, early treatment of symptoms, as well as state-of-the art technology in screening and diagnostic procedures through upper endoscopy and colonoscopy.
