Gastroenterological diseases affect the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, which work together to move food along the digestive tract, while absorbing nutrients and discarding waste products. Diseases of the hepatobiliary system refer to the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts – organs that are involved with the production, storage, transport and release of bile, a secretion that prepares fats for further digestion.
Whether you have a complex digestive disorder like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a common disorder like constipation or heartburn, a precancerous condition like Barrett’s esophagus, or you’re a woman who would feel more comfortable having a female gastroenterologist perform a colonoscopy, the Digestive Disorders Institute at Stony Brook is where you want to be.
