As part of a growing expansion of services at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, Washington University gastroenterologists have added their nationally ranked interventional expertise to the Creve Coeur campus.
The expansion is the latest in giving St. Louis County residents closer access to treatments and therapies that previously were only available in the Central West End. Previous expansion includes the 2008 opening of a new facility on campus for The Siteman Cancer Center, the installation of a linear accelerator for radiation oncology services, increased radiology services, and pediatric services in partnership with St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
“The Digestive Health Center at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital are state-of-the-art with highly-trained staff,” says David Goran, MD, medical director of gastroenterology services at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital. “Our program provides an excellent environment not only for routine gastrointestinal procedures but also for advanced interventional procedures. Our lab is backed by anesthesiology, a full-service radiology department, surgery and an inpatient hospital.
The new physicians—including Steven Edmundowicz, MD, director of interventional endoscopy at Washington University—are located in Medical Office Building 2, 10 Barnes West Dr. Edmundowicz and his team have clinical and research interests that include diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, pancreatic disease and therapies related to gastroesophageal reflux disease.
