Gastroenterology is the study of the normal function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver.

Perhaps you are experiencing digestive system symptoms that your regular physician has not been able to treat effectively. Alternatively, you might be aware of a significant gastrointestinal condition and seek specialized care for it. Consulting a specialist with additional training in your specific condition can offer numerous advantages. Gastroenterologists conduct more research, examinations, and procedures related to gastrointestinal issues than other medical professionals. As a result, they have a higher chance of providing accurate diagnoses, detecting issues early, and treating them with fewer complications.

Some common Gastroenterology issues include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Celiac disease
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Food allergies and intolerances
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Diverticulitis
  • Appendicitis
  • Colorectal polyps
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Liver diseases, such as:
    • Viral hepatitis
    • Toxic hepatitis
    • Fatty liver disease
    • Cirrhosis
  • Pancreatic, biliary and gallbladder diseases, such as:
    • Gallstones
    • Cholecystitis
    • Pancreatitis
  • Esophageal disorders, such as:

    • Esophagitis
    • Hiatal hernias
