When a patient looks for a physician who specializes in the study of the stomach, liver and other digestive organs, they’re looking for a gastroenterologist. These physicians focus on the function of the system organs, the digestion and absorption of nutrients, and conditions that involve the bowels.

A gastroenterologist treats conditions like colon cancer, acid reflux, hepatitis or gall bladder disease. Nearly 18,000 of these specialists are listed here, with an average of 23 years’ experience in the field.

As a part of their extensive training – about six years, in most cases – the endocrinologist receives training in endoscopy. This procedure uses a flexible, lighted tube while inspecting the intestinal tracts, and is necessary for performing procedures in the intestines like polyp removal.

It’s helpful to remember that the gastroenterologist is trained to manage preventive care as well as disease, and is likely to suggest lifestyle changes to improve health too.
