Overview

Gastroenterology is an area of medicine focused on the health of the digestive system, which includes the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, liver, pancreas and gallbladder.  

The digestive system breaks down food into nutrients, which the body uses for energy and growth. Gastroenterology studies and treats this essential and complex process to ensure our bodies receive proper nutrition. This is important to every single person, regardless of your age or physical condition.

A digestive disorder can affect nutrition while also being quite uncomfortable. Mercy Health’s gastroenterologists understand this and are skilled to treat many digestive disorders impacting the health of our patients.

While gastroenterology spans multiple organs and systems, Mercy Health also offers comprehensive care solutions specific to the liver and pancreas, both organs included in the field of gastroenterology.
