Gastroenterology is the medical study of the stomach and intestines. The gastroenterologist will often use an endoscope as part of the examination and therapy. An endoscope is a thin flexible tube used for examining the interior of a bodily canal or hollow organ. By using this instrument, the physician can examine the intestinal tract, acquire biopsies, remove polyps and gather images.
