Below you'll find a video of Dr. Leon Yoder, a gastroenterologist at CTCA. Gastroenterologists examine problems and diseases involving the intestinal track, which can include the esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, bile ducts, and pancreas. Gastroenterologists perform diagnostic procedures such as endoscopies and colonoscopies to check for problems, such as cancer. In this video, Dr. Yoder explains how gastroenterologists help in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers such as stomach cancer.
"A gastroenterologist is a specialist in medicine that deals with diseases in the intestinal tract…. If you have problems with your esophagus or stomach, a gastroenterologist is the one to first step in and say, ‘what’s causing the problem?’"
