Digestive Disease Center

Gastroenterology & Hepatology

Gastrointestinal conditions can be uncomfortable physically as well as socially. From acid reflux, gallstones, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to more complex conditions such as advanced liver disease or GI cancers, finding relief can be a challenge.

Our gastroenterologists and hepatologists at the Temple Digestive Disease Center provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic options for a full range of gastrointestinal disorders, from simple to complex. Our services are available at multiple locations throughout the Philadelphia region.

Experience and Collaboration

We combine years of training and experience with some of the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technology to offer each patient a customized care plan. Our goal is to treat patients with the least invasive method. When surgery is needed, our gastroenterologists and hepatologists work closely with the surgical team for diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, gall bladder, pancreas and liver. Our surgeons specialize in using minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic techniques whenever possible. In many cases, this may result in quicker recovery times, shorter hospital stays and a lower risk of complications.

Specialized Programs for Complex Conditions

The Temple Digestive Disease Center offers disease-specific programs for some of the most hard to manage GI conditions. Each program is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of specialists who possess an in-depth understanding of your condition and can provide the most effective treatment.  Learn more about our areas of focus:
