Learn about the latest advances in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and advanced endoscopic procedures from the experts of the Dr. Henry D. Janowitz Division of Gastroenterology at Mount Sinai. Ever since Mount Sinai physician Burrill Crohn, MD, and colleagues described the condition now known as Crohn’s disease, Mount Sinai gastroenterologists have been on the cutting edge of diagnosing and treating IBD and other gastrointestinal disorders. Bruce Sands, MD, MS is the Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology and Director of the Digestive Disease Institute. A longtime advocate for the continued translational research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, Dr. Sands is widely recognized for his innovative treatment of IBD and for his clinical investigations of new therapeutics. Our Susan and Leonard Feinstein IBD Clinical Center, led by Jean-Frederic Colombel, MD, and Marla Dubinsky, MD, is at the forefront of research into the causes of IBD and leads the field in clinical trials that have advanced patient care. Additionally, at our Center for Advanced Colonoscopy and Therapeutic Endoscopy at Sinai (CACTES), led by Christopher DiMaio, MD, our physicians are pioneering new tools and techniques to identify, diagnose, and treat the most complex digestive disorders.
The Gastroenterology & GI Surgery Department at the Mount Sinai Hospital is proud to be ranked No. 13 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals for 2022-23.
