The UC San Diego Division of Gastroenterology treats patients with a wide range of gastrointestinal diseases, including:

• Liver disease
• Colon cancer
• Pancreatic disease
• Hepatitis
• Biliary diseases
• Inflammatory bowel disease
• Peptic ulcer disease
• Gastrointestinal motility disorders (irritable bowel syndrome)
• Esophageal disorders
• Celiac sprue

UCSD's specialists, who are nationally and internationally recognized, have particular clinical expertise in liver transplantation, advanced endoscopic procedures, GI motility and molecular diagnostics of gastrointestinal cancer.

We are also leaders in the fields of minimally-invasive and robotic surgical techniques designed to help our patients recover more quickly and with less scarring. Our specialists are defining the very future of surgery with their groundbreaking Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) procedures.

The division’s faculty members are also engaged in clinical and basic science research to further advance the understanding and treatment of gastrointestinal disease.

We look forward to working with our patients in the successful management of all GI conditions, from esophageal disorders and inflammatory bowel disease to pancreatic-biliary disorders and gastrointestinal cancers.
