Gastroenterology


spacerGastroenterologists are physicians specially trained in the management of disorders of the digestive system. The major organs they treat include the mouth, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum.
spacerAmong the many conditions a Gastroenterologist investigates and treats are swallowing difficulties, narrowing of the esophagus, hiatus hernia, ulcers of the stomach and duodenum, cancer of the stomach and pancreas, disorders of the liver and gallbladder, diverticulitis, polyps, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, cancer of the colon and hemorrhoids.
spacerWork of Gastroenterologists has been dramatically changed in recent years by the development of fiber optic endoscopes. Much of the gastrointestinal tract can now be visualized directly by these instruments and samples can be taken for laboratory examination. Non-invasive procedures such as CAT and MRI scanning have also greatly increased the diagnostic abilities of Gastroenterologists.
