What Does a Gastroenterologist Treat?

The gastrointestinal system can be sensitive, and you might notice that certain foods can cause you pain and distress. The gastrointestinal tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, and liver and there are several issues that can affect this system. It’s important to understand what could affect your GI system and how a gastroenterologist can help you. Dr. Miguel Arenas at Mesquite Gastroenterology and Surgery Center in Tucson, AZ, can explain what a gastroenterologist can help you treat.

Treating Issues With Gastroenterology

There are many issues that can cause pain to your gastrointestinal system. Sometimes, issues could be just temporary and don’t require any further treatment, but when problems tend to reoccur, it’s important to talk to our gastroenterologist in Tucson, AZ, to find out what could be bothering you.

The most common issue that a gastroenterologist helps treat is acid reflux. Acid reflux is a common issue that people everywhere struggle with, and it can be brutal. You might experience severe pain and irritation and it can be difficult to function. If you deal with acid reflux on a regular basis, you might be dealing with another issue known as GERD.

Some other common issues that a gastroenterologist can help treat include:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Colorectal cancer

Many of these issues can be easily managed with proper treatment, but it’s important to be able to identify the issue and start treatment as early as possible.
