Gastroenterology is a medical specialty focusing on diseases of the digestive system. Gastroenterologists are trained in diagnosing and treating a number of diseases, including cancers of the pancreas, liver, esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum and anus.
A host of diagnostic tests may be performed to detect and stage stomach cancers, such as a barium enema, colonoscopy, endoscopy or ultrasound. The type of diagnostic test and treatment patients receive depend on the specifics of each individual’s case. Our Gastroenterology Program uses minimally invasive procedures to treat cancers of the digestive system and to relieve symptoms associated with your specific digestive cancer.
