Important Terms to Know About Gastroenterology Doctors
Gastroenterology doctors specialize in the branch of medicine dealing with the digestive system. They focus on diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract, including all organs from the mouth to the stomach to the intestines. To become a gastroenterologist, one must complete eight years of pre-med and medical school, followed by a one-year internship, three-year internal medicine residency, and up to three years in a gastroenterology fellowship program. Physicians and doctors in their field of medicine may work in a private practice or within a hospital. Here are some important terms to consider when searching for a gastroenterologist.

Biliary Tract: A part of human anatomy that involves the path by which bile is secreted by the liver. It then makes its way to the small intestine, or duodenum.

Hepatology: A branch of medicine that involves the study and management of the liver, gallbladder, biliary tract and pancreas. It is a sub-specialty of the field of gastroenterology.

Gastrointestinal Tract: The parts of the body that encompass the stomach and intestines. The digestive system may be used to describe a broader scope of these anatomical features, including organs necessary for digestion.

Pancreatitis: A condition in which the pancreas becomes inflamed.

Primary Biliary Cirrhosis: A chronic cholestatic liver disease that requires the affected person undergo a liver transplant or face fatal consequences.

Ulcerative Colitis: A fairly common disease that involves the inflammation of the large intestine, or colon.

Hepatic Encephalopathy: Often associated with advanced liver disease, this is a metabolic neurophysiologic condition.

Hepatitis: Disease that triggers liver inflammation and infection.

If you are in need of a gastroenterology physician, there are certain things you will want to consider. When you or a family member has a disorder relating to the digestive system, this is the doctor you will need to seek for assistance. This may include any pain in the stomach or abdominal area. A pediatric gastroenterologist will be able to work with kids who have stomach disorders. If you have a family doctor, they should be able to refer you to a reputable gastroenterologist. The following are questions to ask when you are looking for a gastroenterologist.

  • What will your health insurance cover?
    Before you go to a medical clinic, you will want to make sure that the physician is covered by your health care policy. Look through your policy or speak with a human resources representative from your employer for more information on your health care coverage.

  • Who needs a gastroenterology doctor?
    If it is your child that needs a trip to the gastroenterologist, you will need to find a pediatric physician. If it is somebody else in your family, double check to make sure your health care policy will cover any doctor visits to the medical clinic.

  • What needs to be done?
    A gastroenterologist specializes in the abdomen and the digestive system. This kind of doctor may have knowledge in dermatology, cardiology and gastrology. Your gastroenterologist should also be knowledgeable in the field of pathology. Pathology is the study of any disease and its possible treatments. Dermatology is the study of the skin. Cardiology is the study of the heart and gastrology is the study of the stomach.
