The G-FPA physicians treat patients suffering from digestive disorders of all types, including cancerous, precancerous, and non-cancerous conditions.
A partial list of diseases and disorders that we treat routinely includes colitis, diverticular disease, peptic ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), swallowing disorders, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), polyps, diseases of the esophagus, and cancers of the digestive system including malignancies of the esophagus, stomach, rectum, and colon.
Many of the physicians practicing in the Mount Sinai GI-FPA are ranked among the leading gastroenterologists in the country. As members of the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine,we are researchers as well as physicians.
And, because we’re on the staff of a major medical center, we are fortunate in being able to create, and refer to, the very latest research from all medical specialties including our own.
We’re also pleased to note that many of the diagnostic tools and treatments routinely used to care for digestive disorders today have been developed or refined by Mount Sinai gastroenterologists.
Every day of the year, the observations we make while treating patients are shaped into questions that are then tested through our research. The outcomes from this research then guide the individualized care we provide to every patient. Moreover, through publication in peer-reviewed medical journals, results from our clinical research are shared with physicians worldwide.
The result is that we’re able to deliver tomorrow’s medicine today.
