The Section of Gastroenterology and Hepatology
The Section of Gastroenterology and Hepatology has a tradition of major contributions in clinical and basic science research, training the next generation of gastroenterology fellows for academic and clinical careers, and providing personal care for patients with complex gastrointestinal and liver diseases.
Tulane Gastroenterology is staffed with expert gastroenterologists who care for all forms of gastrointestinal disease including cancer screening, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), motility disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatic disease, biliary disease, nutritional disorders, and liver disease.
Our endoscopy center is a state-of-the-art facility staffed with dedicated professional nurses and endoscopic technologists. We utilize the most up-to-date techniques to screen for colon cancer, assess acid reflux, screen for Barrett's esophagus, evaluate anemia, dysphagia, and abdominal pain, detect gastrointestinal motility disorders, and endoscopically manage pancreaticobiliary disorders.
Adjacent to the Tulane Gastroenterology clinic is the Tulane Abdominal Transplant Institute clinic. In the transplant clinic, patients with liver disease are managed and evaluated for optimal therapy, including liver transplant when applicable. The abdominal transplant clinic is also the site of many ongoing clinical trials for new medications to treat liver diseases of all types.
Gastroenterology Fellowship Program
The Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program at Tulane is a three year ACGME-approved subspecialty program leading to competence in the independent practice of general gastroenterology. The curriculum follows guidelines for GI training set down by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Trainees will rotate among three main sites, all of which serve patients from New Orleans, south Louisiana and beyond: Tulane University Hospital and Clinic, University Medical Center New Orleans (UMCNO), and Southeast Louisiana Veterens Health Care System (SLVHCS).
Faculty include individuals with expertise in general gastroenterology, hepatology (especially liver transplant), advanced therapeutic endoscopy, and inflammatory bowel disease. The diverse faculty also include those with many years of practice in both private and academic settings. Fellows will have an opportunity for exposure to all of these disciplines. They will also have the opportunity to be involved with clinical and basic research.
