At Weill Cornell Medicine, patients receive expert, compassionate care from physicians who are at the forefront of medical innovation through the development of new cures, treatments and technologies.
Our nationally-recognized gastrointestinal program provides treatment for a wide range of digestive- and liver-related disorders, including Hepatitis C, fatty liver, liver cirrhosis and liver cancer, liver transplantation, pancreatic and gallbladder diseases, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease, colon cancer, esophageal cancer, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome, achalasia and clostridium difficile (C. diff) and other intestinal infections.
Our healthcare providers create personalized care plans that incorporate proven diagnostic and therapeutic methods as well as cutting-edge procedures, like advanced interventional endoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that allows physicians to detect and treat disorders in the digestive tract.
We also offer the newest endoscopic therapies for obesity as well as capsule (pill) endoscopy, a new noninvasive method to take images of the digestive tract.
Patients can also receive specialized care at one of our multidisciplinary centers, which focus on specific digestive and liver conditions:
The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health, named in memory of Katie Couric's late husband, provides multidisciplinary care for gastrointestinal cancers, genetic screening for hereditary cancers and management of esophageal and motility disorders.
The Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease provides state-of-the art treatment options for patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
The Center for Liver Disease provides comprehensive care, including liver transplantation, for all forms of liver disease. It includes the Center for the Study of Hepatitis C which offers specialized treatment to patients infected with the virus.
The Advanced Endoscopy program provides cutting edge minimally invasive procedures for a variety of GI, liver and pancreatic diseases, which in many cases, allows patients to avoid surgery. A new program focuses on management of obesity and fatty liver disease in conjunction with our weight loss program, our bariatric surgery program and our Center for Liver Disease team.

The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health is named in memory of Jay Monahan, the late husband of Katie Couric, CBS Evening News anchor and managing editor. The Monahan Center is a state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary model of integrated patient care, focusing on prevention, screening, treatment, support, research, and health education for individuals who have or are at risk for developing gastrointestinal cancers.
For more information on the Monahan Center, the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal cancers, how the healthy GI system works, and how to identify clinical trials, please visit the Monahan Center website at http://www.monahancenter.org
The center is dedicated to the research and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a condition affecting more than 1 million Americans, that most often results from two specific diseases: ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
"IBD is a chronic, interruptive illness that affects primarily, but not exclusively, young adults and their families that love them," said Dr. Ellen Scherl, the center's director and a professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell. "At the new Jill Roberts Center, the focus will be on individual patient care with a private practice approach, but in an academic setting; truly the best of both worlds."
The opening of the center in NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell's Stich Building on East 70th Street was the final phase of a strategic plan to develop a three-part, world-class gastrointestinal facility comprising the Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health and the Center for Colon and Rectal Surgery.

Keep up with the latest news from the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition team:
The Division opened its world-class hepatitis C Center in 2000. The Center's mission is to improve our understanding of the biologic properties of the hepatitis C virus, the mechanisms by which it causes damage to the liver, to identify new research-based treatment for this disease, and to improve the lives of millions of infected people. The Center has added an enhanced component of public health and epidemiology. A cooperative endeavor of Weill Cornell Medical College, The Rockefeller University, and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, this is the only comprehensive, multidisciplinary center dedicated to the study of hepatitis C in the tri-state area.
The unique collaborative environment allows prominent scientists and dedicated physicians to work together towards advancements in outstanding patient care, clinical trials, clinical research, basic science research, and education and outreach.
The mission of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology is to provide excellence in clinical care, education and research. The multifaceted goals are to deliver outstanding patient care with compassion; to enhance clinical service with the addition of new programs, clinical treatments and recruits; to teach a strong basic foundation in the medical sciences combined with extensive clinical training in patient care; to advance cutting-edge basic and clinical research in all areas of gastroenterology; and to foster and promote physicians who are at the forefront of medical innovation through the development of new cures, treatments and technologies.
Research, including numerous clinical trials, is underway in the areas of hepatitis C, GI cancer treatment and prevention, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, endoscopic ultrasound, pancreatic cystic neoplasms, and HIV. Over the past few years, the Division has created a first rate clinical service through recruitment of subspecialty faculty and programs, including the areas of hepatology, inflammatory bowel disease, endoscopic ultrasound and ERCP, and motility.
