About the UPMC Digestive Disorders Center

More than 70 million Americans are affected by digestive disorders. For some people, digestive disorders cause discomfort, embarrassment, and a loss of work time. For others, these disorders can be extremely serious, ruining their quality of life. They can even be life-threatening.

UPMC's Digestive Disorders Center provides "one-stop" access to highly skilled specialists in diseases of the esophagus, stomach, intestine, liver, gall bladder, bile ducts, and pancreas, as well as problems of nutrition and obesity.

UPMC's digestive experts work as a team, putting together the skills of different specialists to craft an individualized course of treatment that can restore a patient's quality of life and even save lives. They also are active researchers, developing new and better ways to diagnose, treat, and understand digestive disorders.

Academic Resources

Our doctors participate in regional and national studies to try and find new treatment options for digestive disorders. These studies are called clinical trials. Our clinical trials are constantly changing.  If you are interested in participating, visit the Office of Clinical Research's website for a searchable listing of all clinical trials.

More academic resources can be found at the University of Pittsburgh's Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition website.
