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). More information about these procedures can be found in the Trafford Endoscopy section of this website.
