Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology focuses on the diseases affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract including the organs from mouth to anus along the alimentary canal. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD) are chronic inflammatory diseases of the GI tract that are speculated to occur due to the interaction of genetic susceptibility, environmental factors and host immune response.According to a previous study performed on a hospital based study in Gampaha and Colombo, it was indicated that 6.5 of 100,000 in the Sri Lankan population was reported with IBD (Niriella et al., 2010).
