Gastroenerologists with Martin Health provide diagnostic procedures and treatment for patients with digestive tract diseases that involve the stomach and intestines. What is known as the gastrointestinal (GI) tract can span from the mouth to the anus so you’ll often hear it referred to as the upper tract and the lower tract. To view the organs of the digestive tract, which include the liver, gallbladder, esophagus and pancreas, gastroenterologists commonly perform upper-GI endoscopies or colonoscopies.
You may be referred to a gastroenterologist if you are suffering from a digestive tract disorder. Common conditions can include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis and heartburn.
