The Section of Gastroenterology and Hepatology in the Department of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, specializes in the care of digestive tract and liver diseases, including expert prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment.
Our patients benefit from highly trained specialists and the latest advancements in screening and therapeutics, for the best possible outcomes. Patient care is compassionate, personal, and timely, thanks to the use of electronic medical records and on-site radiology and lab services.
We offer prompt evaluation and endoscopy for a full spectrum of gastrointestinal (GI) complaints, including complicated reflux disease, gastroparesis, refractory nausea and vomiting, chronic abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), abnormal liver function, and chronic Hepatitis B and C.
We offer special expertise in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), diagnosis and treatment of Barrett's esophagus including radiofrequency ablation, infrared coagulation (IRC) treatment of hemorrhoids, video capsule endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound.
We are also proud to offer one of the nation's best liver transplant programs. Patients are frequently referred to us for colorectal cancer screenings. We offer these patients prompt evaluation and open access endoscopy when appropriate, avoiding the need for a full gastrointestinal specialty consult.
