What is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is the study and treatment of a wide variety of gastrointestinal ailments. Gastroenterologists diagnose and treat disorders of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon. Our team works to improve your health through medication, surgical procedures, and education on lifestyle changes.

Many people suffer from digestive issues caused by illness, injury, long-term habits, or simply overindulging in food or drink. Whatever their cause, digestive problems can have a profound impact on your health and quality of life. But whether it's time to see a doctor about your frequent heartburn, or you’ve been diagnosed with a serious condition such as Crohn’s disease or pancreatic cancer, Lee Health’s gastroenterology specialists want to help.
