As physicians working within Mount Sinai Health System that includes Icahn School of Medicine, we have access to the latest and best medical talent and equipment.
To improve diagnosis further, we employ our own team of staff pathologists, who specialize in examining tissue samples taken specifically from gastrointestinal (GI) patients. This specialized experience allows more accurate and rapid diagnosis, which in turn leads to earlier and more targeted treatment for you.
Our physicians stay on the cutting edge of science and discovery in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive disorders by doing research that expands knowledge every day. We pioneered many of the latest treatment and non-invasive diagnostic tests at Mount Sinai. Much of the research that we conduct is through clinical trials.
Participation in clinical trials gives patients like you a unique opportunity to receive a new treatment or benefit from new diagnostics that might otherwise be unavailable.
Your participation also helps doctors improve the care we provide you and others throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. Our physician scientists conduct many studies throughout the year, examining the effectiveness of new therapies and procedures. We encourage you to speak with your doctor if you are interested in learning about our current clinical trials.
