Treating Functional Bowel Disorders


Any specific conditions which are diagnosed (e.g. reflux, hiatus hernia, gallstones) can be treated appropriately and this may then reduce the background level of functional bowel symptoms.

The management of functional bowel disorder itself usually involves a multi-disciplinary approach involving dieticians, gastro-enterologists and possibly specialists across other fields. South West Reflux work closely with a team of experts who can offer different insights into this holistic nature of care.

Our patients say . . .

A quick note to say thank you for my cholecystectomy – absolutely brilliant.
