What you should know is that g-tube is known to be a type of medical device. This will be inserted on the stomach. The cut that will be made will not be big, but it will be enough to insert the device correctly. The J-tube is also another type of medical device. This is inserted in the middle portion of the small intestine.

This is why people may get confused with these two devices since they are placed in the abdominal area. They have different purposes, though. The J-tube is used in order to give the medications that people may need directly on the person’s stomach. There are also times when the g-tube will be used in order to remove the stomach gases.
