A gastroenterologist is a specialist that treats disorders of the digestive tract including oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, small bowel, colon and rectum as well as the liver, biliary tree and pancreas. Gastroenterologists perform procedures such as gastroscopy and colonoscopy.
Gastroenterologists manage conditions affecting the digestive system, and diseases that affect your stomach, oesophagus, gallbladder, pancreas, liver, intestines, colon, and the rectum.
An endoscopy is a medical procedure that allows doctors to see inside the body, without having to conduct invasive surgery. Doctors can use a long tube with a camera on the end (endoscope) to see where the problem is, and whether it requires surgery.
