Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine whereby the digestive system and its disorders are studied. Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the organs from mouth to anus, along the alimentary canal, are the focus of this specialty. Our gastroenterology specialists treat patients with diseases or disorders of the pancreas, liver, colon, gallbladder, small intestine and stomach. They work collaboratively with physician colleagues in hepatology, general surgery, otolaryngologists, colorectal surgery, and oncology and provide our patients with comprehensive and innovative treatments for a variety of conditions.
