Gastroenterology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the digestive system, including the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, colon and rectum, liver, pancreas, bile ducts and gallbladder.
 
Gastroenterology is a non-surgical, medical specialty, though increasingly gastroenterologists use endoscopy for the diagnosis and treatment of certain conditions.
 
The primary diseases and disorders of the digestive system are as follows:
 

  • Gastrointestinal cancers
  • Digestive disorders
  • Gallbladder disorders and complications
  • Large and small intestines disorders
  • Liver disorders
  • Oesophagus diseases and disorders
  • Paediatric gastroenterology
  • Pancreas disorders
