Gastroenterology conditions affect the digestive tract. The digestive tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, pancreas, gallbladder and rectum. These conditions include constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, celiac disease, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, nausea, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and Barrett’s Esophagus.
These conditions can occur at any age and are common. For instance, it is estimated that up to 20% of the population in this country suffers from GERD and that 10-15% of the population experiences symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Symptoms of gastrointestinal conditions can be painful, uncomfortable and, in some cases, interrupt daily life activities.
