What is Gastroenterology?

A gastroenterologist is a physician who is trained in internal medicine and who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive system. The digestive system includes the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine or colon, liver, pancreas and gallbladder. Gastroenterologists also have expertise in Digestive Wellness maintenance, such as advising patients about colon cancer screening and prevention.
