Who is a Gastroenterologist?

A gastroenterologist is a medical doctor who specialises in the detection and treatment of disorders related to the liver and gastrointestinal tract. Gastroenterologists do a  procedure called colonoscopies to look inside the colon. 

What is Meant by Gastroenterology/GI medicine?

Gastroenterology is a specific branch of medicine that mainly focuses on the digestive tract, liver bile ducts, gallbladder, and pancreas. A gastroenterologist treats a variety of conditions that affect the gastrointestinal system, including hepatitis C, irritable bowel syndrome, cancer, colon polyps, jaundice, acid reflux, haemorrhoids, colitis, biliary tract disease, and more.

When Should You Consult a Gastroenterologist?

Your primary care physician may recommend you to a gastroenterologist if you have:

  • Consulting with patients to understand their health problems.
  • MRI, X-ray, and ultrasound scanning.
  • Performing advanced tests to diagnose patients.

  • Evaluating patient’s historical data.

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Gallbladder conditions
  • Celiac disease

Endoscopy is a medical process followed by gastroenterologists. They use a flexible and lightweight tube with a built-in camera to observe the intestines from the inside. Though gastroenterologists are not surgeons, they work closely with them when required.

A gastroenterologist performs a wide range of non-surgical processes. It may include:

  • Endoscopic ultrasound to determine the lower and upper GI tracts and other internal organs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a gastroenterologist?

Gastroenterologists are doctors who are trained to diagnose and treat problems in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract and liver. These specialists primarily diagnose and treat GI diseases in both men and women. They also perform endoscopic procedures in which they use specialized instruments to view the GI tract and make a diagnosis. They don’t perform surgeries but may work closely with a GI surgeon.

Gastroenterologists diagnose and treat diseases that occur in the gastrointestinal system. The gastrointestinal system is responsible for the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and removal of waste from the body.
