Gastroenterology

The study of esophageal, stomach, small intestinal, colon, rectum, pancreatic, gallbladder, bile duct, and liver diseases is known as gastroenterology. It requires a thorough knowledge of the physiology of the gastrointestinal organs and their typical function, which includes the motility, or movement of matter, through the stomach and intestines, nutrient absorption and digestion, elimination of waste products from the body, and the role of the liver as a digestive organ.

Hepatitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease (heartburn), peptic ulcer disease, colitis, gallbladder, and biliary tract disease, nutritional issues, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and pancreatitis are among the common and significant conditions that are covered.
