Gastroenterology is the arm of medicine dealing with disorders of the digestive system. The digestive system extends from the mouth, covering the pharynx, i.e., throat, esophagus, i.e., food pipe, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus, and is responsible for the crucial function of digestion of food.
