Gastroenterology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of digestive disorders, as well as preventive measures for various diseases, including cancer and pre-cancer.
Screening is conducted based on specific criteria including age, family and personal history of cancer, as well as other diagnoses that put a patient at risk. For instance, Barrett’s esophagus puts a patient more at risk for one type of esophageal cancer and a family history of colon cancer increases an individual’s risk of colon cancer.
Many medical gastroenterology treatments overlap with surgical treatments, which is why patients at the Center for Digestive Health benefit from the seamless integration of both disciplines, supplemented further by oncology, pathology and other clinical specialties.
