Digestive Diseases

Gastroenterology is the medical term for medicine that treats disorders of the digestive system. Washington University’s board-certified gastroenterologists and hepatologists (liver specialists) have more than 50 years of experience in medical treatment, research, and training for diseases of the digestive tract.

The Washington University board-certified specialists who treat patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital offer a comprehensive range of GI (gastrointestinal) subspecialties, including treatment for diseases of the esophagus, stomach and small intestines (duodenum); the large intestine, colon and rectum; and the hepatobiliary system, such as the liver, gall bladder, biliary tract and pancreas.

We are committed to providing cutting-edge technology for optimal patient care. Barnes-Jewish Hospital contains modern endoscopy and motility facilities, fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. More than 10,000 gastrointestinal procedures are performed annually at the endoscopic facilities of Barnes-Jewish Hospital alone; more than 80 percent of these are performed by full-time faculty.

Our clinical, research, and training programs have received wide recognition for sustained contributions to the field.
