Gastroenterology is a branch of medicine concerned with digestive diseases. The practice of gastroenterology concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (colon), liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. This medical field is really a subspecialty of Internal Medicine as is, for example, cardiology, which deals with diseases of the heart. Greenville Health System (GHS), was rated among the best in the nation in the 2010 U.S. News rankings.

GHS has two gastroenterology groups and a colon and rectal practice, should surgery be necessary.
