Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology

Gastroenterology emphasies on digestive system and its disorders which includes the alimentary canal. It involves a comprehensive understanding of the physiology of the gastrointestinal organs, including the motility of food through the stomach and intestine, the digestion and absorption of nutrients into the body, removal of waste out of the system, and the function of the liver as a digestive organ.  Advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases  has been noteworthy in the recent years. Investigation is going on new diagnostic procedures and novel therapeutic approaches for gastresophageal reflux disease (GERD), pancreatico-biliary and post-surgical problems, Barrett’s esophagus,  neuro-endocrine tumors and gastrointestinal stromal tumors. In Japan, gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death.
