Centers for Gastrointestinal Disorders
The award-winning resources of the Institute for Digestive Disorders include:
- Center for Gastrointestinal Motility – The National Institutes of Health estimates that one in three persons has a GI functional or motility disorder. This specialized diagnostic and treatment center focuses on gastrointestinal disorders which damage the nerves, muscles and sphincters that normally keep food moving from one part of the digestive tract to the next. State-of-the-art gastroenterology treatments range from traditional and minimally invasive surgery to interventional GI endoscopy, medications and nutritional programs.
- Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) – The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center offers evidence-based, effective therapy for managing Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This includes proactive medication administration with a focus on minimizing steroid exposure, timely office visits for flaring patients, novel endoscopic imaging including chromoendoscopy, and close attention to quality metrics such as vaccination, bone health and cancer screening. We administer biologic-based therapies at the Winthrop Infusion Center. We benefit from a close collaboration with Pediatric Gastroenterology for our adolescent patients, Maternal-Fetal Medicine for our expectant mothers, the Urgent Care Center and Colorectal Surgery for same day appointments and more invasive treatment options, Radiology and Pathology for diagnostic testing, the Rheumatology department for extra-intestinal disease manifestations and our on-staff registered dietician.
- Center for Liver Diseases – The center offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary evaluation and treatment for common liver disorders like chronic viral hepatitis B and C, cirrhosis, cancer, metabolic and autoimmune disorders. Treatments range from minimally invasive surgery and radiosurgery to nonsurgical oncology treatments and liver transplants.
- Center for Pancreatic Diseases – Pancreatic disorders and diseases are diagnosed and treated by a multidisciplinary team of gastroenterologists, radiologists, surgeons and oncologists. Gastroenterology treatments include endoscopic and surgical management of pancreatic structures and pseudocysts and non-surgical cancer treatments for pancreatic malignancies.
