The human digestive system is a complex network of tubes and specialized organs. Unless it works correctly, we can’t digest our food, extract nutrients to nourish our bodies, or dispose of waste.
Because of this complexity and the food that passes through it every day, the digestive system is susceptible to problems.
In the United States, almost 70 million people suffer from digestive system disorders, according to the National Digestive Diseases Information Services.
These disorders cause the hospitalization of more Americans than any other group of diseases.
When conditions such as chronic heartburn disrupt your intricate digestive system, you need the care of the excellent and experienced gastroenterologists at UT Health Northeast at Tyler.
