The body's digestive system is a complex tool that transforms nutrients in food into energy and gets rid of waste. Its organs and tissues run all the way from the mouth to the anus and include the esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, small intestine and colon, as well as the liver and pancreas.
Digestive disorders may disrupt one or more parts of the process. They can cause anything from mild discomfort to debilitating pain and embarrassment. Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center can offer answers and relief through our skilled care team and advanced diagnostic and treatment options.
