Mayuri Gupta, MD, is an internal medicine physician and one of the few physicians in South Florida who is fellowship-trained in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS).
An endoscopic ultrasound is used when a cancer of the gastrointestinal tract is suspected. The physician places a transducer (a probe with an ultrasound tip) through an orifice that allows for a more up close look at organs inside the body, thus producing more accurate and detailed images than those obtained by traditional ultrasound. EUS is helpful for:
- Staging of cancers of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, rectum and lungs cancer
- Initial diagnosis of pancreatic cancer with ability to perform a tissue biopsy for definitive diagnosis
- Evaluating chronic pancreatitis and other masses or cysts of the pancreas
- Studying bile duct abnormalities including stones in the bile duct or gallbladder, or tumors found in the liver, bile duct or gallbladder
- Studying the muscles of the lower rectum and anal canal in evaluating reasons for fecal incontinence
- Studying submucosal lesions such as nodules or bumps that may be hiding in the intestinal wall covered by normal appearing lining of the intestinal tract
Dr. Gupta sees patients, especially women, with acute and chronic gastrointestinal problems and those with complaints of reflux, acute or chronic abdominal pain and common gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting and bloating.
Dr. Gupta studied at the MGM Medical College in Indore, India, before accepting an internal medicine internship at Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. She then completed an internal medicine residency at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center – McKeesport Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.
