When people come to Mayo Clinic seeking answers for gastrointestinal conditions, they find physicians with extensive experience and expertise. Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., has been ranked No. 1 for gastroenterology patient care by U.S. News & World Report every year for some 20 years — ever since the magazine began publishing rankings.
Making this high-quality patient care possible are equally exceptional research activities. For decades, Mayo has been advancing the science of digestive diseases — from pioneering work in inflammatory bowel disease and liver cancer to research related to gastrointestinal motor and sensory function.
At Mayo Clinic today, almost all gastroenterologists are studying the very same digestive diseases faced by their patients, including motility disorders, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and liver and pancreatic diseases.
To better understand these conditions and develop new treatments, Mayo gastroenterologists and scientists join forces to examine these diseases from all angles.
In our research laboratories, the molecular, cellular and genetic bases of digestive diseases are investigated. At the same time, other research teams are exploring the effectiveness of new medications through clinical trials. Still others are improving the accuracy and precision of technologies and instruments used in digestive disease diagnosis and surgery.
