Digestive disorders affect more than 70 million Americans, and in the most serious cases, these conditions can be life-threatening.
At UPMC's Digestive Disorders Center, we strive to provide world-class care for a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) conditions. We are committed to providing the best care for all our patients, no matter their condition.
That commitment remains our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are continuing to provide the expert GI care you expect from us. We also are taking every possible step to keep our patients and staff safe from the coronavirus.
If you need us, we are here for you.
At the UPMC Digestive Disorders Center, we diagnose and treat dozens of medical disorders. We provide care related to nutrition and obesity, as well as diseases of the esophagus, stomach, intestine, liver, gall bladder, bile ducts, and pancreas.
It is safe to make an appointment for a procedure, office visit, or treatment. We are following all recommendations from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
