What is Gastroenterology?
Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focusing on the digestive system and its disorders. Doctors specialising in the field are called gastroenterologists. Many important advances have been made in the last 50 years, contributing to rapid expansion of its scope.
Hepatology or hepatobiliary medicine encompasses the study of the liver, pancreas and biliary tree and is traditionally considered a subspeciality of Gastroenterology.
