Academic accomplishments include full accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The Division also is home to a three-year gastroenterology and hepatology fellowship. Two highly skilled, motivated clinicians train per year.

The Division’s new full-service, GI Motility and GERD Therapy Lab diagnoses complex heartburn and swallowing disorders.

Our staff annually performs thousands of minimally invasive endoscopic procedures. These procedures include upper endoscopy, colonoscopy and small bowel capsule. In addition our physicians’ training and expertise is focused on diseases of the pancreas and bile ducts as well as pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions of the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, ampulla, colon, pancreas, bile ducts and liver). They specialize in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), fine needle aspiration (FNA), biliary and pancreatic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), complex polypectomy, endoscopic mucosal resection and ablation. In addition they perform luminal stenting (esophagus, gastroduodenal, colonic), small bowel capsule evaluation and balloon enteroscopy.
