Liver, Pancreas and Gallbladder
With so many functions, the liver can be impaired by many different conditions. These include viruses, autoimmune and hereditary forms of liver disease as well as reactions related to alcohol and medications. All of these problems can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, so early diagnosis and treatment is very important.
The pancreas has an important role in digestion. If it malfunctions or becomes inflamed, patients can develop abdominal pain, diarrhea and weight loss. Our doctors are trained to diagnose and treat these and other abnormalities of the pancreas, where prompt intervention is often lifesaving.
The presence of gallstones in the gallbladder is one of several causes of abdominal pain. The doctors at Gastroenterology Associates are trained to diagnose this condition and eliminate other possible causes of pain.
