What is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is a surgical specialty that focuses on the digestive tract (GI tract), the path, organs and tissue involved in eating, swallowing, digesting and eliminating waste.

  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Gallbladder
  • Pancreas
  • Bile ducts
  • Liver
  • Small intestine
  • Large intestine (colon)

Many conditions affecting these organs cause similar symptoms such as heartburn, stomachaches, diarrhea and acid reflux.
