    Gastroenterology is a field of medicine that studies the gastrointestinal tract. Doctors in this specialty understand the function of digestion and diagnose diseases and conditions that affect this system. The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travels to the stomach and liver, before ending with the colon and anus. Gastrology is similar only the focus is on diseases of the stomach. With gastrology, only the stomach is taken into consideration, so this doctor will diagnose things like ulcers. A gastroenterologist handles many common health complaints like acid reflux, heartburn, and stomach pain. The doctor investigates symptoms like bloody diarrhea or vomiting, and begins to rule out specific conditions or diseases affecting the organs and intestines. You may need to visit a special clinic for scans and x-rays to look for tumors or blockages. With some situations, medicines that control stomach acid are all that's needed. Other times, a surgeon is called in. Cardiology physicians help rule out heart disease in cases of severe heartburn. Sometimes more than one specialist helps pinpoint a disease. Cardiology, dermatology and pathology physicians often team up with the gastroenterology team. This is helpful when disorders like Celiac's Disease present themselves. Cardiologists and dermatology or pathology doctors may think of abdominal disorders that other specialists miss. Pediatric specialists work with infants and children to diagnose pediatric gastrointestinal conditions. Many diseases and conditions involving the gastrointestinal system are treatable or preventable. Seek medical care as soon as possible to start treatment. Your discomfort doesn't have to be a constant part of your life.
