Conditions Treated by Gastroenterologists


Pancreatitis
Pancreatitis is a disease in which the pancreas becomes inflamed. The pancreas is a long, flattened, pear-shaped organ located behind the stomach. It makes digestive enzymes and hormones including insulin. In pancreatitis, the digestive enzymes attack the tissue that produces them.

Liver Cancer
The liver is located in the right side of the abdomen. It stores and metabolizes nutrients, and filters and stores blood. Liver cancer is the growth of cancer cells in the liver.

Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease. The defect occurs in epithelial (lining) cells. These cells normally create a mucus. The mucus is a vital tool for many organs. CF causes the cells to produce a very thick and rubbery mucus. This most commonly causes: Obstructions and infections of the lungs and airwaysMalabsorption in the gastrointestinal system (stomach and intestines)

Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic Cancer occurs when cells within the pancreas begin to grow abnormally in an uncontrolled and invasive way.

The pancreas is an organ located behind and to the right of the stomach, near the liver, gall bladder, and intestine. The area of the pancreas on the right side of the body, closest to the first section of the small intestine, is called the “head” of the pancreas; the middle section, behind the stomach, is called the “body” of the pancreas; and the section on the left side of the body, closest to the spleen, is called the “tail” of the pancreas.

The condition is associated with a number of diseases that affect the intestines or other areas of the gastrointestinal tract.
