Gastroenterology at Penn
Symptoms and complaints related to the digestive
tract are among the most common reasons patients
seek the advice of their health care provider.
According to the Centers for Disease Control,
more than 40 million doctor's visits every year
are related to gastrointestinal problems and
more than 15 million Americans end up in the
emergency department with severe abdominal complaints.
Physicians at the University of Pennsylvania
Health System have pioneered advances within
the field of gastroenterology and
provide more options in detecting and treating
the myriad of diseases that can affect the human
digestive tract. Experience in both patient care
and research allows them to provide expert care
for everyone, including people with complicated
medical conditions or risk factors.
