Finding New Ways to Offer New Hope

Focusing on various conditions and diseases of the digestive system, our gastroenterologists conduct clinical and outcomes research in an effort to find new treatment options for patients suffering from gastroenterological conditions. Our current areas of research are focused on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis, acid reflux and chronic pouchitis.

What Sets Us Apart?

Sponsors choose to partner with our gastroenterologists for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Decades of experience as principal investigators for IBD
  • An accomplished research staff that includes six research coordinators
  • A large patient population that facilitates enrollment
  • An integrated system that allows for referrals from other therapeutic areas
  • A dedicated research pharmacy

Additionally, physicians from outside Atrium Health refer to our gastroenterologists to give their patients:

  • Options for IBD treatment when current therapies aren’t working
  • Access to our dietary intervention trial

Working on both industry-sponsored research and with research consortiums, such as the CCF Clinical Research Alliance, our researchers strive to find new ways to offer new hope through advanced treatment options that improve patient outcomes.
