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.
