Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Stony Brook specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive tract and liver. Outpatients and patients in the hospital are treated by physicians with expertise in all forms of gastroenterological and hepatobiliary diseases. Highly-skilled members of the Division perform over 13,000 endoscopic procedures in our state-of-the-art facilities.

These procedures are part of an integrated and sophisticated approach to the care of patients with gastrointestinal and liver diseases by members of our faculty. High-quality care depends upon scientific discovery. Our faculty members are conducting clinically important investigative work that includes: new drug discovery; development of methods to prevent cancer using novel approaches such as nanotechnology and magnifying endoscopy; clinical trials; and studies on inflammatory bowel disease.

The goal of our research efforts is to ultimately improve the care of patients. I welcome you to our website and would appreciate your feedback.
