What is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is the study of the normal function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. It involves a detailed understanding of the normal action (physiology) of the gastrointestinal organs including the movement of material through the stomach and intestine (motility), the digestion and absorption of nutrients into the body, removal of waste from the system, and the function of the liver as a digestive organ.

It includes common and important conditions such as colon polyps and cancer, hepatitis, gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn), peptic ulcer disease, colitis, gallbladder and biliary tract disease, nutritional problems, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and pancreatitis.

Quality Care is Our Priority

We strive to ensure that all World Health Organization and CDC standards including – appropriate hand hygiene, correct patient and site standards – are followed with each procedure. You will be asked many times to identify yourself and verify the correct spelling of your name, as well as your planned procedure. We verify this information frequently to assure that each patient has a safe, quality outcome.
