About Our Department
While most digestive diseases are manageable, many of them negatively affect patients’ quality of life. At LSU’s Department of Gastroenterology, our goal is not only to treat your condition, but also to improve your daily life.
LSU gastroenterologists provide patients with hope and optimism through excellent clinical care and individualized treatment options—including opportunities to participate in research studies and clinical trials. Our role in medical research and advanced endoscopic procedures attracts patients from across the nation for treatment. With a reputation for being mentors to gastroenterology’s future leaders, physicians from all over the Southeastern U.S. send referral cases to LSU’s Department of Gastroenterology.
The differences between conditions of the digestive system are subtle, and often contradictory. Clear, accurate, and confidential communication between patient and physician is integral in effectively treating the simplest to the most elusive digestive disease. The more information you share about your symptoms, discomforts, and daily activities, the more informed your physician is to accurately diagnose and treat you.
At LSU Healthcare Network’s Department of Gastroenterology, we look forward to solving your digestive issues so that you may enjoy your good health.
