About Gastroenterologists

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the health of the digestive tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon or large intestine, liver, biliary tract and pancreas.

Some of the most common gastrointestinal disorders include GERD, Barrett’s esophagus, swallowing disorders, peptic ulcer disease, Celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticular disease, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, gastrointestinal bleeding, hepatitis and liver disorders, pancreatitis, gallbladder and biliary disorders.

Gastroenterologists also perform screenings for colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women combined. Such screening colonoscopies allow the physicians to remove polyps which are the precursors to colon cancer, and thereby, prevent the cancer.
