Digestive Disease Center

Tour Our Facilities - Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center

Nearly 70 million Americans suffer from digestive disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers, gastritis, pancreatic and gall bladder disease, esophageal and colon cancers, and acute and chronic liver disease – debilitating conditions that can profoundly affect both the health and overall quality of life of those afflicted.

The Digestive Disease Center at SUNY Downstate Medical Center provides expertise in all aspects of gastrointestinal disease management in a multi-disciplinary environment.

As an academic tertiary medical center we offer complete services for evaluating gastrointestinal motility disorders, anorectal and colonic problems and liver disease. Our fully-equipped endoscopy unit provides advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques such as EUS, EMR, BARRx, photodynamic therapy (PDT), capsule endoscopy, single balloon enteroscopy, esophageal and anorectal manometry and Remicade infusion therapy.

In addition, our Pancreaticobilary Center offers EUS and ERCP procedures, including all therapeutic techniques, and sphincter of Oddi manometry. We also have well-established services in interventional radiology, laparoscopic surgery, pediatric gastroenterology, surgery and GI oncology. Digestive Disease Center physicians coordinate all aspects of patient testing and treatment in one convenient location, and maintain communication with referring physicians, providing a seamless continuum of care.

Patients requiring consultation and treatment for complex issues or advanced therapeutic endoscopy will find that the Digestive Disease Center offers the best care in Brooklyn.
