What does the gastroenterologist do?
When it comes to stomach and intestines
Gastroenterology mainly examines the digestive organs, which include the stomach and intestines, but also the liver, pancreas, gallbladder and esophagus.
The gastroenterologist makes diagnoses and offers therapy options and preventive measures in the field of digestive health. He advises his patients on questions relating to nutrition. This also includes food intolerances. Hepatology is another specialty of gastroenterology, which includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts.
A gastroenterologist is also responsible for preventive and follow-up examinations in the case of tumor diseases in the digestive tract. This includes, for example, the colonoscopy, which is also known under the medical term colonoscopy. Here, skin tumors can be discovered in the intestine.

What diseases does the gastroenterologist treat?
Some of the areas of application
Colorectal cancer is a malignant growth of cells in the lining of the large intestine, very rarely in the small intestine. A distinction is made between rectal cancer and colon cancer. Colorectal cancer only causes symptoms at an advanced stage. Warning signs include blood in the stool, abdominal pain, unwanted weight loss, and alternating constipation and diarrhea.
The causes of this inflammatory bowel disease are not yet fully known. It is characterized by symptoms such as prolonged diarrhea, abdominal pain and weight loss.
When acid flows back from the stomach into the esophagus, heartburn occurs. This is often the case after fatty foods or extreme alcohol abuse. If the symptoms last longer, a malfunction in the sealing mechanism between the stomach and esophagus can be the cause.
