Michael S. Smith, MD, MBA, is the Chief of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospitals and Associate Professor of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Until recently, he was Associate Professor in the Gastroenterology Section at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Medical Director of the Esophageal Program at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Dr. Smith graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with a concentration in molecular biology, after which he earned both an MD and MBA with honors in healthcare management at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and the Wharton School of Business. He then completed a residency in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a gastroenterology fellowship at the Columbia campus of the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Upon returning to Philadelphia, Dr. Smith joined the medical faculty at Temple and focused his clinical practice on the management of esophageal disease. He formalized a Barrett's esophagus treatment program, as well as a multi-disciplinary management conference for patients with esophageal disorders. His research interests have focused on evaluating how new technologies are best incorporated into everyday treatment of diseases of the esophagus. Dr. Smith has been recognized as one of the Best Doctors in America on multiple occasions. He has spoken across the country as a visiting professor and guest lecturer, and has been a mentor to physicians new to endoluminal treatments for Barrett's esophagus.
