Gastroenterology is an area of medicine that focuses on your digestive health, often referred to as the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Chronic heartburn, constipation, abdominal cramps, nausea, gas or diarrhea can all be symptoms of serious conditions within organs that are part of your GI tract. These organs can include your:
- Small and large intestines.
Your gastroenterologist can provide non-surgical treatment for both men and women for everything from Chrohn's disease to an ulcer.
They can also perform important preventative screenings for colorectal (colon) cancer, which is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the U.S., but highly treatable when doctors find it early.
