The Center for Advanced Digestive Care at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian is one of the nation’s leading multidisciplinary centers for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases.
We treat all aspects of digestive disease in adults, adolescents and children, drawing on our expertise, advanced therapies and pioneering research to deliver comprehensive and personalized care.
At the CADC, a full range of world-class specialists – including gastroenterologists and hepatologists as well as colorectal, bariatric, hepatobiliary, cardiothoracic, and transplantation surgeons – team up to treat patients and conduct research to find new and better therapies.
The CADC also supports a robust number of clinical trials run Weill Cornell Medicine physicians and researchers, giving patients access to new and innovative treatments that may not be available at other institutions.

In addition to adult care, the Center for Advanced Digestive Care provides services to children with digestive disorders primarily through The Phyllis & David Komansky Center for Children's Health, one of the nation's leading centers for the diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases. Pediatric and adult specialists routinely collaborate on patient cases as dictated by the individual patient care plans. Click here for more information on our pediatric services.
Transition Care is a program to help pediatric patients initiate a pathway to self-sufficiency and assist them in taking charge of their condition as they move from pediatric care to adult digestive care. We facilitate adjustment to the new environment of adult care, introduce them to new physicians, and help them understand the critical importance of keeping up-to-date with therapies and appointments. This process begins in adolescence (around the age of 12) and continues through the teen years and into young adulthood (through age 18).
Your digestive care -- physician appointments, diagnostic testing and treatment therapies -- is in one convenient location, all coordinated by clinical program specialists who take you step-by-step through the care process from diagnosis to treatment and recovery.
Yes. The Center offers complete diagnostic testing and treatment therapies for all digestive disorders.
