Medical experts specialising in the field of gastroenterology focus upon the health of the digestive system or the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal system is responsible for the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients, and removal of waste from the body. Gastroenterologists commonly diagnose, treat, and assess symptoms and diseases which arise in the gastrointestinal tract, common diseases include:

• Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

• Gastro-Oeosphageal Acid reflux

• Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)

• Hepatitis

• Inflammatory bowel disease

• Jaundice

• Polyps in the large intestine

• Gastrointestinal cancer

• Reflux esophagitis (caused by gastroesophageal disease)

• Hemorrhoids

• Bloody stool, cramping, bloating

A gastroenterologist may perform a number of procedures to diagnose gastrointestinal diseases. However, these procedures are not surgical. These may include non-surgical procedures to diagnose gastrointestinal diseases such as:

• Colonoscopies

• Gastroscopies

• Liver biopsies

• Endoscopic ultrasounds

• Sigmoidoscopies

• Capsule endoscopies

Gastroenterologists would be of great help in the legal process. They may be able to provide a critical diagnosis of symptoms, they may also be able to correlate certain gastrointestinal issues to the external environment, or they may comment on how certain lifestyle choices contribute toward gastrointestinal issues. The specific specialisation and background needed in your gastroenterologist expert will be determined by the matter which requires examination.
