Tummy Troubles and Stomach Woes: Diagnosing and Managing Digestive Disorders

Hosted by Thomas A. Judge, MD

Each year, millions of Americans are diagnosed with digestive disorders -- ranging from the occasional upset stomach to the more life-threatening colorectal cancer. Digestive disorders encompass disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.  Undiagnosed and mismanaged tummy troubles and stomach woes, such as GERD, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), gastric motility disorders, peptic ulcer disease, chronic diarrhea, constipation, or incontinence can have a profound impact on a person’s quality of life.  Join Thomas A. Judge, MD, for Health eTalk on Thursday, March 3 from Noon-12:30 p.m., as he answers questions and concerns about the management of digestive health.

Dr. Judge is a gastroenterologist at the Cooper Digestive Health Institute.  He attended medical school at Temple University School of Medicine and completed his internship, internal medicine residency, and a fellowship in gastroenterology at University of Michigan Medical Center.  Dr. Judge is board certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology, and has a special interest in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrheal syndromes, and disorders of the small intestine and colon.
