What is gastroenterology?

The word Gastroenterology might seem a little intimating, but it isn’t. It is a branch of medicine that focuses internally, but more specifically on the digestive system. Any disease that affects your digestive tract is what a gastroenterologist studies.

In order to become a gastroenterologist, one must follow a long process. Eight years of medical school, a year-long internship, three years of an internal medicine residency, and a couple of years of gastroenterology fellowship. During this time the doctor will learn and perform diagnostics and procedures. These include but are not limited to colonoscopies, liver biopsies, and endoscopic ultrasounds.

Common Pancreas Disorders

There are a variety of disorders that affect the pancreas. These include acute pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, hereditary pancreatitis, and chronic pancreatitis.

Evaluation of these diseases is hard to do because it’s not easy to access the pancreas is difficult. But there are tests that show if something is happening. Blood tests are helpful and commonly show if there is a problem. Other than this ACAT scans, MRIs, and endoscopic ultrasounds give a clearer evaluation.
