Gastroenterology is a professional medical field created to examine, diagnose and treat abnormalities associated with the digestive system. This medical field is tasked with the responsibility to ensure that the digestive system of a patient remains in a constant state of homeostasis with optimal function. Gastroenterologists complete 12 years of post-secondary education and training. This includes the 4-year requirements to obtain a bachelor’s degree program of higher education as well as four years of medical school and four years of residency. The most common procedures performed by gastroenterologists include endoscopies and colonoscopies. These procedures scope inside a patients digestive tract to determine root causes of symptoms. Many examinations will result in further investigation and testing so gastroenterology practices work closely with laboratories to examine and diagnose presenting conditions. Typical diseases treated includes acid reflux, hepatitis, colitis, polyps, gastric ulcers and cancer.
Gastroenterologists often see patients and operate their businesses out of private practices and in an affiliation with one or more hospitals. A practice typically includes one or several gastroenterologists, physician assistants (PAs), and office administrative staff. Practices participating with a medical school have a learning environment and will take on rounding resident doctors. Some practices market products to their patients like vitamins and other probiotics for gut health to promote a healthy skin and to promote healthy gut health and to provide additional revenue to the practice.
