Long-standing national recognition
Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, has been recognized as the best gastroenterology and GI surgery hospital in the nation by U.S. News & World Report in every year since 1990, when the rankings were first established.
Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, are also ranked among the Best Hospitals for digestive disorders. In addition, Mayo Clinic ranks among the Best Children's Hospitals for digestive disorders.
In fact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds many gastroenterology research projects at Mayo Clinic each year. Each year the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology has an average of 63 active federal grants totaling more than $15 million. NIH cooperation helps create an environment for cutting-edge research in which Mayo Clinic's scientists and physicians produce original research articles that are published in numerous peer-reviewed journals.
Research conducted at Mayo Clinic has produced new treatments of liver disease, IBD and many other GI conditions; new technologies to identify causes of irritable bowel syndrome and other motility disorders; and a new generation of endoscopic techniques to perform incision-free procedures for obesity and other complex GI conditions.
Mayo Clinic not only conducts extensive basic science, but also carries out a wide range of clinical trials focused on digestive disorders and treatment.
