What we do
Our goal is to provide high quality clinical care using an evidence-based approach whenever possible. All of the medical staff in the division are qualified to provide specialized care in their areas of expertise as well as in general GI, hepatology and nutrition.
The division is organized into three inpatient sections and our ambulatory program. The inpatient sections include: liver and small bowel transplantation (on ward 6A); general GI, nutrition and hepatology (on ward 6A); and a consultation team which provide consultative services across the hospital. We run a procedure facility on ward 4C for diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, biopsies, probes and manometry. This facility services both our inpatient as well as our ambulatory program.
Our ambulatory program has specialty clinics in cystic fibrosis, dysphagia, hepatology, IBD, general gastroenterology and nutrition. We manage patients on home – total parenteral nutrition (TPN), and home enterostomy feeding. The clinics are run as multidisciplinary teams, including nurses, clinical nurse specialists, dietitians, social workers and physicians.
