Gastroenterologists are experts in diagnosing and treating patients for symptoms that arise from the organs of the gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach, large and small bowels, pancreas, liver and gallbladder. Examples of such symptoms could include diarrhea, constipation, trouble swallowing, heartburn or abdominal pain. They also perform screening colonoscopy for patients with a family history of colon cancer or personal history of colon polyps.
At Gi Specialists of Clarksville, the gastroenterologists perform nonsurgical examination of a patient’s digestive tract including colonoscopy (lower endoscopy), esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD or upper endoscopy), and liver biopsy.
The doctors at Gi Specialists follow guidelines from the ACG (American College of Gastroenterology) to provide patient care.
