What is a Gastroenterologist?

A gastroenterologist is a professional physician who has specialized expertise in the management of issues involving the gastrointestinal tract and liver. Most often, that means problems stemming from the digestive system, which begins in the esophagus and extends through the stomach, small intestine, and colon, before ending in the rectum, while also including the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver along the way!

Expert gastroenterologists abound at Houston Digestive Diseases Consultants and have spent decades unveiling the secrets behind the physiological and biological aspects of a disrupted gastrointestinal system, including the motility of material through the digestive tract along with the understanding of normal digestion and absorption processes that should take place.

Some of the more common symptoms that patients seek the aid of gastroenterologists for include:

colon polyps
cancer of the gastrointestinal tract
hepatitis
gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn)
