What is a gastroenterologist?

Gastroenterologists specialize in disorders of the digestive system (also known as “the GI tract”). Patients see gastroenterologists for common digestive disorders like acid reflux, heartburn, and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as chronic conditions like Crohn’s disease and digestive cancers. While gastroenterologists don’t perform surgeries, they do perform colonoscopies, liver biopsies, and various types of endoscopic procedures.
