Gastroenterology is the study of conditions affecting the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. It requires a thorough understanding of the physiology of the gastrointestinal organs and their typical functions, which include the motility—or movement—of substances through the stomach and intestines, the digestion and absorption of nutrients into the body, the elimination of waste products from the system, and the role of the liver as a digestive organ. It comprises prevalent and significant illnesses, such hepatitis, gastric reflux disease, peptic ulcer disease, colitis, gallbladder and biliary tract disease, nutritional issues, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), colon polyps, and cancer[1].

A gastroenterologist is the doctor or physician, specialized in this field.
