The digestive and liver disease specialists at UT Southwestern Medical Center aim to help patients feel “normal” again and reduce hospital admissions and complications. We offer a multi-disciplinary approach to diseases and work closely with the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center and surgery, oncology, and radiology teams.
Patients who see a specialist early in the course of their disease have the best chance of successfully managing their disease and resuming an active lifestyle.
