Clinical faculty members in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology provide services through three hepatology clinics; two liver transplant clinics; an esophageal/motility clinic; a full-time nutrition service; and a pancreatic/biliary disease clinic, in addition to teaching clinics at both the Ralph H. Johnson Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and MUSC. In addition to specific clinics, procedures performed include advanced general endoscopic procedures, endoscopic ultrasound, ERCP, esophageal manometry/24-hour pH monitoring, and a remicade infusion clinic. The Division is nationally and internationally regarded for its expertise in advanced endoscopy.
The Division’s clinical faculty are members of the Digestive Disease Center (DDC) at MUSC. The DDC brings together diverse specialties involved in evaluating and treating digestive diseases and disorders. Clinical services are coordinated within five sections: liver disease; pancreatic and biliary disease; gastrointestinal cancer; and general gastroenterology/functional and inflammatory bowel disease and nutrition. In 2017, MUSC Health was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as high-performing in seven adult specialties, including gastroenterology and GI surgery.
