Treating Digestive Diseases
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.
Gastroenterology involves a detailed understanding of the normal action of the gastrointestinal organs including the movement of material through the stomach and intestine, 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.
Some of the conditions our experienced team of gastroenterologists can provide treatment for include:
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

- Swallowing disorders
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
