The Division of Gastroenterology provides comprehensive resources for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases, which include disorders of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, pancreas, liver and bile ducts. We are committed to excellence in patient care, education and research in digestive diseases and nutrition.
The University of Arizona Medical Center(UAMC) in Tucson has an outstanding group of renowned physicians and researchers with expertise in diseases of the esophagus, liver, pancreas and colon. The division is involved in liver transplantation (Arizona Liver Institute) and works closely with the Arizona Cancer Center, the only NCI designated cancer center in the southwest, to provide state of the art treatments for cancers of the digestive organs.
Our endoscopy center uses the latest instruments with high resolution imaging capabilities and we perform both routine and advanced procedures that are not offered by others in the region. We function as a center for the development of new and advanced imaging techniques, working closely with some of the best biomedical researchers and optical engineers in the nation.
With our diverse research activities and our dedication to the education of future physicians in this field, we are able to provide a breadth of expertise that is unparalleled in the region. As we expand our services, we will create new centers of excellence that will not only provide state of the art care but also facilitate new discoveries.
