GASTROENTEROLOGY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the health of the digestive system, which includes the health of all of the organs responsible for digesting and excreting food. A gastroenterologist is a medical specialist who diagnoses and treats digestive system disorders affecting the stomach, small and large intestines, esophagus, gall bladder, pancreas, liver, and rectum. Gastroenterology should not be confused with Gastrology, which is the study of the stomach and corresponding stomach diseases.
