Gastroenterology

What is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is the study of the function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. It includes understanding the details of the normal functions of the gastrointestinal organs including the movement of material through the stomach and intestine, the digestion and absorption of nutrients into the body, removal of waste from the system, and the function of the liver as a digestive organ.

What I need to know

The physician who specializes in this type of medicine is called a Gastroenterologist – and they require dedicated training and unique experience in the management of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver.
