Gastroenterology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the digestive system, including the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. The digestive system is essential for the body to break down food into nutrients that can be absorbed and used for energy, growth, and repair.
Gastroenterologists are medical specialists who diagnose and treat diseases and disorders of the digestive system. They use a variety of diagnostic tests and procedures, including endoscopy, colonoscopy, and imaging studies, to evaluate the digestive tract and identify any abnormalities.
Common conditions that gastroenterologists diagnose and treat include:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Gallstones and other disorders of the gallbladder
Liver diseases, including hepatitis and cirrhosis
Pancreatitis and other pancreatic disorders
Celiac disease and other food intolerances
Gastroenterologists also perform a variety of procedures to treat digestive system disorders, including:
Endoscopic procedures to remove polyps, tumors, or foreign objects from the digestive tract
Stenting and dilation to treat obstructions in the digestive tract
Radiofrequency ablation to treat precancerous conditions of the esophagus
Liver biopsy to diagnose and monitor liver diseases
If you are experiencing symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation, it is important to see a gastroenterologist for evaluation and treatment. Gastroenterologists can provide personalized treatment plans based on your specific symptoms and diagnosis.
