Gastroenterology (GI)

Gastroenterology Treatment in Milwaukee

Gastroenterology is the study of the normal function of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver, as well as the diseases that affect these systems.

Gastroenterologists have an intimate understanding of how nutrients move through the digestive tract, as well as the physical and chemical breakdown of those nutrients and the removal of waste byproducts from the body. Additionally, gastroenterologists identify and diagnose issues with the liver’s digestive functions.

Milwaukee Board Certified Gastroenterologists

Upon successful completion of this examination, physicians are deemed Board Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Other Gastroenterology Certifications

Gastroenterologists may be distinguished beyond their board certification for demonstrating above-average achievement in research or teaching within the field of Gastroenterology. These distinguished physicians may be designated as “Fellows” by the American College of Gastroenterology and the American College of Physicians, affording them use of the suffixes FACG and FACP. These suffixes denote a physician’s fulfillment of the rigorous requirements imposed by each organization to attain these added distinctions.
