Our Division is deeply and passionately committed to the missions of academic medicine. We provide the highest quality patient care for a wide spectrum of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. The faculty in our five teaching hospitals possess both depth and expertise in a variety of disorders, including AIDS, inflammatory bowel diseases, liver transplantation, bone marrow transplantation, and cancer of the gastrointestinal tract. Our many innovative and pioneering clinical research programs allow our patients to access highly promising and exciting treatment protocols.
Our patient care program includes several major components. Gastrointestinal pathology services assist patients and their physicians in the correct diagnosis of GI symptoms; therapeutic endoscopy provides patients with avenues for treatment of pre-cancerous bowel diseases; and our hepatology and liver transplant services provide clinical services for patients with hepatitis and other chronic liver diseases. Our faculty conduct research, perform and supervise clinical procedures, and see patients in five area teaching hospitals.

Our clinics accommodate referrals directly from community physicians and through the UW Medicine Contact Center at 206.520.5000, which directs the referral to the facility best aligned to the patient’s immediate needs. Further, we aim to minimize patients’ travel time and sedation and will consolidate procedures as much as possible, depending on the nature of the procedures.

Multi-Disciplinary Care, A Team of Specialists
We believe that excellence in patient care includes a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating digestive diseases and cancers. By bringing together a team of cross-disciplinary specialists to diagnose and treat a single problem, we eliminate the need for a patient to seek out separate opinions from various branches of medical sciences. Gastroenterologists, hepatologists, liver transplant surgeons, gastrointestinal tumor surgeons, gastrointestinal pathologists, and gastrointestinal radiologists all come together in a single session, in a single location, to discuss the correct diagnosis and best possible treatment plan for a patient. Through this process, the patient is offered a fully researched, definitive recommendation.
