Gastrointestinal disorders—even relatively minor ones such as Heartburn, Constipation, or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease—can affect your quality of life in many ways.

Patients with GI disorders of any type can find the most extensive and advanced diagnostic and treatments available today at the Gastrointestinal Center at University of Miami Hospital.

Our nationally and internationally recognized physicians specialize in Esophageal Disorders, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, GI Cancer, Pancreaticobiliary Diseases, Obscure GI Bleeding, Small Bowel Diseases, and Motility Disorders as well as general GI and advanced endoscopic therapies.

Fully equipped with the latest technology, the GI Center at University of Miami Hospital performs approximately 5,500 procedures per year, many of which are done without the need for traditional surgery. Endoscopes—small flexible fiber-optic tubes equipped with miniature video cameras and micro instruments—allow for minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat most GI conditions.

Digestive Disorders

Each year, millions of Americans are diagnosed with digestive disorders, ranging from the occasional upset stomach to the more life-threatening colorectal cancer. They encompass disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
Reaching a diagnosis requires a thorough and accurate medical history and physical examination. Some patients may need to undergo more extensive diagnostic evaluations, including lab tests, endoscopic procedures, and imaging techniques. Physicians who specialize in the treatment of digestive problems are called gastroenterologists.
