Treating Small Intestine Disorders
A part of the gastrointestinal tract, the small intestine (also called the small bowel) connects to the stomach and continues on to connect to the large intestine. It is made up of three main parts, the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum. Some conditions that may affect the small intestine include the following:
- Celiac disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Intestinal cancer
- Irritable bowel syndrome
General surgeons at University of Utah Health have widespread experience in treating disorders or conditions of the small intestine and are fellowship trained in many related specialties.
