Founded in 1947, the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology has had a long history of excellence that continues today.
With 80 faculty, 25 fellows, and over 150 staff, we are one of the largest gastroenterology practices in the country and a leader in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of all diseases of the gastrointestinal system, from simple to complex, including those of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and biliary tract.
We have established a number of clinical centers of excellence:
- Esophageal Disorders Program
- Functional Bowel Disorders Program
- Hepatology Program
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program
- Interventional Endoscopy Program
- Michigan Bowel Control Program

In addition to being leaders in the clinic, our faculty are also leaders in their respective areas of research, which span such varied interests as the role of peptides in the brain–gut interactions in functional bowel diseases to innovative treatments of viral hepatitis and liver cancer.
