We utilize some of the most advanced diagnostic technologies available in the country and specialize in advanced therapeutic endoscopic procedures that are only available in select centers. Our large and varied clinical practice takes advantage of the peerless state-of-the-art facilities of our Digestive Disease Center equipped with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for the management of everything from complex motility disorders and pancreatico-biliary diseases, to small intestinal conditions requiring deep, device-assisted enteroscopy and advanced endoscopic surgical techniques like POEM (Per oral Endoscopic Myotomy). In addition to our varied clinical activities, we are committed to the education and training of physicians. We offer a three-year fellowship that reflects the clinical activities of a large urban tertiary care referral hospital with the research opportunities provided by an outstanding faculty of recognized experts.
Temple Health, one of Philadelphia's leading academic medical centers, is home to more than 1,000 physicians and scientists who share the mission of bringing innovative treatments to patients.
