Gastroenterology is a medical specialty that treats disorders of the stomach, intestines, and liver.
Digestive problems are among the most common reasons people visit their doctors. At Carilion Clinic, our expert gastroenterologists are skilled in evaluating and treating people with disorders of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gall bladder, and pancreas.
We offer multidisciplinary care for digestive and pancreatic disease, with highly skilled specialists in surgery, oncology, radiation therapy, pathology and imaging.
Some of the conditions we treat are:
- Inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
- Colon polyps and cancer
- Esophageal disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD) and Barrett's esophagus
- Diseases and cancers of the pancreas and bile ducts
- Gastrointestinal motility disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and delayed gastric emptying
