Gastroenterology


Gastroenterology is the speciality relating to the gastrointestinal tract – including the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel and colon. It also involves related digestive organs such as the pancreas, gallbladder, biliary tree and liver. All gastroenterologists are trained to look after patients with conditions affecting these organs, however some also have a particular interest in diseases of the liver (known as hepatology).

Common conditions that gastroenterologists can manage include:

  • gastro-oesophageal reflux,
  • stomach ulcers,
  • gastro-intestinal bleeding,
  • functional gastro-intestinal disorders (such as irritable bowel syndrome), and
  • inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).

Gastroenterologists often investigate symptoms by performing endoscopy and colonoscopy. Some have further training in endoscopic ultrasound and video capsule endoscopy. Early stages of oesophageal and colorectal cancer can also be treated through these procedures.

We have gastroenterologists providing services at all five locations across Adelaide, as well as a number of country areas.
