UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA

The Division of GI Surgery is dedicated to providing comprehensive surgical care for patients with basic and complex gastrointestinal diseases. Patients are referred to our surgeons from across the Southeastern United States for management of a variety of benign and malignant GI disorders via open and laparoscopic approaches, including:

• Repair of primary, recurrent, and complex abdominal wall hernias
• Gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernias, and achalasia
• Weight-loss surgeries (gastric bypass, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding, and revisions)
• Gallbladder disease
• Colon and rectal cancer
• Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
• Enterocutaneous fistula and short bowel syndrome
• Anorectal disease including rectal prolapse, incontinence
• Nutrition and metabolism
• Comprehensive list of Surgical diagnoses

We partner with our GI Medicine colleagues in providing multidisciplinary patient care through The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center, the Center for Esophageal Diseases and Swallowing (CEDAS), and the Center for Pancreatic and Biliary Disease (CPBD). With approximately 15,000 outpatient visits per year, the GI Medical-Surgical Clinics offer a "stream-lined" approach to patient evaluation and care.
