Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine whereby
the digestive system and its disorders are studied. The name is a
combination of three Ancient Greek words gaster (gen.: gastros)
(stomach), enteron (intestine), and logos
Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the
organs from mouth to anus, along the alimentary canal, are the focus
of this specialty. Physicians practicing in this field of medicine
are called gastroenterologists.
