    • Upper endoscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD): Examination of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum using a flexible scope.
    • Colonoscopy: Examination of the colon and rectum to screen for colorectal cancer, diagnose inflammatory bowel disease, and investigate gastrointestinal bleeding and other abnormalities.
    • Flexible sigmoidoscopy: Examination of the rectum and sigmoid colon.
    • Capsule endoscopy: Swallowing a pill-sized camera to visualize the small intestine.
    • Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS): Combining endoscopy with ultrasound imaging to evaluate the GI tract and surrounding organs.
  3. Treatment: Gastroenterologists provide medical and procedural treatments for GI conditions, including:
    • Medications: Prescribing medications to manage symptoms and treat GI disorders, such as proton pump inhibitors for GERD, immunosuppressants for inflammatory bowel disease, and antiviral medications for viral hepatitis.
    • Endoscopic therapy: Performing minimally invasive procedures, such as polypectomy, stricture dilation, stent placement, and hemostasis (control of bleeding) using endoscopic techniques.
    • Therapeutic ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography): Treating bile duct and pancreatic duct disorders, such as removing gallstones, placing stents, and performing sphincterotomy.
    • Liver biopsy: Obtaining liver tissue for diagnosis and staging of liver diseases.
