Extensive GI expertise when you need it

UPMC Center for Intestinal Health and Nutrition Support

Proper nutrition is critical to overall health and wellness. But when gastrointestinal (GI) illnesses or injuries strike, they can compromise our ability to absorb life-sustaining nutrition.

At the UPMC Center for Intestinal Health and Nutrition Support, our doctors work closely with specialists in a variety of other fields to address the nutritional implications that stem from common to the most complex GI conditions.

We treat men, women, and children who are experiencing disruption of gut function due to:

  • Immunological disorders
  • Trauma
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Nervous system problems
