What Is a Peptic Ulcer?


Peptic ulcer disease is a condition in which painful sores or ulcers develop in the stomach or the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). A thick layer of mucus protects the stomach from the effect of its digestive juices. Various conditions can reduce this protective layer, allowing stomach acid to damage the tissue. There are three types of peptic ulcers; gastric ulcers, esophageal ulcers, and duodenal ulcers with varying presentations and treatment options​.​Leading physician specialist, Dr. Chanu Dasari is an expert in various treatment modalities of peptic ulcer disease which allows his patients to live a healthy life.
