Programs & Centers

Our specialists provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic options for a full range of gastrointestinal disorders, from simple to complex.

Temple Digestive Disease Center areas of focus include:


Motility Disorders

Temple digestive disease specialists have been at the forefront of measuring gastrointestinal motility. We are one of the few centers offering antroduodenal motility, impedance tomography and electrogastrography. With this focus, we are frequently able to diagnose and treat motility-related issues that have been traditionally difficult to diagnose. We remain one of the leading centers in the country for  the implantation of gastric stimulators.

Esophageal Disorders

At Temple Health, we have received recognition for our experience in the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal disorders, ranging from motility issues to Barrett's esophagus and cancer. We utilize advanced technology for the diagnosis and treatment of such disorders and have some of the most highly recognized leaders in the field.

Therapeutic Endoscopy

Temple Health specialists were among the first in the region to treat GI malignancies with endoscopic treatments. Our team of interventional endoscopists are among the most experienced in the country and offer novel endoscopic treatments for gastrointestinal  bleeding, biliary and pancreatic duct stones, patients with complications from prior surgery and altered surgical anatomy, as well as endoscopic therapies for pre-cancers and cancers.

Surgery

Temple Health offers an experienced gastrointestinal surgical team for diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, gall bladder, pancreas and liver. Our surgeons and gastroenterologists work closely together, often meeting with patients as a team to review conditions or upcoming surgeries. We specialize in using minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic techniques whenever possible. In some cases, this may result in quicker recovery times, shorter hospital stays and a lower risk of complications.
