Small and Large Intestine Diseases: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

by Carlo Raj, MD

The small intestine, which sits between the stomach and large intestine, serves myriad important functions, the most important being to help you digest and absorb nutrition from the foods you eat. It also can be affected by a number of pathologies, including celiac disease, Crohn disease, infections, intestinal cancer, and intestinal obstructions. The colon, also known as the large intestine, is another part of the digestive system. Its primary functions are absorbing water and making and storing stool. The colon’s ability to function correctly is impacted by many disorders. These include colorectal cancer, colonic polyps, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, and irritable bowel syndrome. This course covers the large array of pathologies affecting the small and large intestines.
