Digestive System


Gastroenterology is the area of medicine that focus on the digestive system.

The digestive system is made up of the digestive tract and digestive organs. When something goes wrong in the digestive system, gastroenterologists can evaluate, treat, and prevent various digestive diseases and their symptoms.

Common Gastrointestinal Symptoms:

  • Abdominal Pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Problems Swallowing
  • Unexplained Weight Loss

Many of these symptoms can be associated with non-gastrointestinal issues. Most patients get referred to gastroenterologists by their primary physicians. Gastroenterologists will run labs, x-rays, or endoscopic procedures to find exactly what is causing your symptoms and how to properly treat the condition.
