Gastroenterology is the specialty that covers disorders of the digestive system, stomach, bowels, liver and pancreas.

There are three Consultant Gastroenterologists in Trafford – Dr John Mason, Dr Marie McMahon and Professor Chris Summerton. They are supported by a full team of junior doctors and specialist nurses.

Many patients with gastroenterological problems undergo investigations with endoscopy (camera examinations of the upper or lower bowel).
