Gastroenterology is the medical branch that helps to diagnose and treat problems related to the digestive system. Physicians specialized in this area are called gastroenterologists.

They mainly focus on the body organs involved in the digestion and processing of food. These are the organs that start from the mouth to the ending of the anus. 

Within the “digestive tract,” a gastro specialist can treat various diseases related to the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, alimentary canal, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver.

If you are experiencing any digestive health issues, consult a gastro specialist immediately. They can diagnose the health issues properly and can provide treatment or prevent it from getting worse. As a patient, you need to know some basic information about the most common conditions that affect your digestive system. This will help to communicate better with your doctor about your conditions.
