Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the normal function of the digestive system and its disorders of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. Our specialists perform a range of nonsurgical procedures.
This can include:
- endoscopic ultrasounds to examine the upper and lower GI tract, as well as other internal organs
- colonoscopies to detect colon cancer or colon polyps
- endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography to identify gallstones, tumors, or scar tissue in the bile duct area
- Sigmoidoscopies to evaluate blood loss or pain in the bowel
