Digestive tract on track

Following the path your food takes, gastroenterologists treat it all; from esophagus down to the intestines. Gastro doctors treat the stomach, pancreas, appendix, and liver, to name a few organs. Additionally, they perform endoscopies and colonoscopies, along with a host of varied surgeries associated with the digestive system.

If you are experiencing severe and persistent stomach pain, unexplained weight loss, or indigestion; our team of doctors can help.

Gastroenterology FAQ

What are common diseases in the digestive system?

Common diseases that occur in the digestive system are:
Ulcers
Gastrointestinal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Crohn’s disease
Colitis

How does a gastroenterologist diagnose patients?

Similar to the XRay in dentistry and ultrasound in gynecology, gastroenterology employs its own method of diagnosis. Endoscopies and colonoscopies differ only in their destination organ, but the procedure is the same. Usually done in a state of sedation, a thin tube with a camera-like device at the end is inserted into the esophagus through the digestive tract. These procedures help gastroenterologists to get a closer look at the problems and symptoms the patient is experiencing.
