Gastroenterology

The field of gastroenterology deals with problems of the digestive tract which includes disorders of the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, rectum, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. Included is a wide spectrum of disorders ranging from acute conditions such as gastroenteritis and constipation, to more chronic problems such as peptic ulcer disease, hepatitis, ulcerative colitis, gallbladder disease, cancers and polyps of the colon, among others.
