We are proud to offer gastroenterology options that are not available at most hospitals and welcome the opportunity to provide a second opinion for anyone concerned with their GI diagnosis or care.
The University of Chicago Medicine opened the first hospital-based gastroenterology department in 1927. We've been at the forefront of digestive disease care ever since.
Many gastrointestinal (GI) diseases and disorders require long-term care. For newly diagnosed patients, learning how to manage a chronic GI disease can be overwhelming and frustrating. Our gastroenterology specialists partner with patients at every stage of their lives to help them through each new challenge, however big or small.
Not only do we have the best minds in medicine, but also our state-of-the-art facilities and technology aid our gastroenterology specialists in every evaluation, treatment and procedure.
At UChicago Medicine, patients benefit from the combined expertise of many of the nation's leading specialists in gastrointestinal diseases. From gastroenterologists and surgeons to hepatologists and nutritionists, our providers from different specialties work together to evaluate patients and develop comprehensive treatment plans.
We provide advanced procedures that effectively treat disease while preserving organ function and minimizing recovery time. For example, our gastrointestinal interventional endoscopists offer nonsurgical diagnostic and treatment options for conditions that are typically treated with invasive surgery at most hospitals.
We are continuing to research the causes and treatments of inflammatory bowel disease and are internationally recognized for our discoveries. Our experts discovered the first gene that increases the risk of Crohn’s disease. Our patients receive the latest medical treatments as well as disease education, dietary counseling and other support services to help them achieve the best quality of life.
The same experts who are treating patients are guiding the research for tomorrow’s medical breakthroughs. We are dedicated to understanding the causes and treatments of GI diseases because we know our discoveries will shape the future for our patients. Patients have the benefit of participating in clinical trials and promising new therapies. To support these efforts, UChicago Medicine is home to the Digestive Disease Research Core Center, one of only 12 such NIH-supported programs in the nation.
The Center for Care and Discovery is the home for gastrointestinal care at UChicago Medicine. The facility features advanced endoscopy suites, as well as hybrid operating rooms, that enable surgeons and endoscopists to collaborate on multiple procedures at one time. We also provide convenient outpatient care across the Chicago area.
U.S. News & World Report ranks our digestive disorders program among the best in the nation. Our doctors are internationally recognized as leaders in their field and several are often on America's Best Doctors list.
We welcome the opportunity to provide a second opinion on your diagnosis or treatment plan. University of Chicago Medicine gastroenterology specialists are truly at the forefront of medicine, and can offer options not widely available at most hospitals.
