Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders. Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which include the organs from mouth into anus, along the alimentary canal, are the focus of this speciality. Interventional gastroenterologists, like Dr. Kim, typically review a patient’s symptoms, history, blood tests and existing imaging records to come up with an opinion and treatment plan, which often includes using special endoscopic procedures. These nonsurgical procedures can reduce complications and speed up recovery time.
