Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Mayo Clinic specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive tract and liver. It is the largest practice of its kind in the United States. In any given year, members of the Division perform approximately 30,000 minimally invasive, endoscopic procedures in state-of-the-art facilities.
Through a divisional infrastructure organized around interest groups oriented toward disease processes, organ systems, procedures or patient groups, clinical expertise is integrated with the newest forms of established and experimental diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Outpatients and patients in the hospital are cared for by teams of physicians and allied health personnel with broad expertise in all forms of gastroenterological and hepatobiliary diseases.
Because of our recognition that high-quality care depends upon scientific discovery, major research programs at the basic, applied, and translational levels exist to generate new knowledge that ultimately benefits patients.
