Every year, approximately 70 million Americans suffer from some type of digestive, liver or pancreatic disorder – from irritable bowel syndrome and gastroesophageal reflux disease to celiac and Crohn’s disease to swallowing disorders and cancer.
As the number of people afflicted with these issues has risen dramatically in the last few decades, it has created a critical need for specialized diagnostic capabilities and innovative treatments and surgeries.
The Allegheny Center for Digestive Health (ACDH), a part of Allegheny Health Network, was created to meet that need. It is a nationally recognized, fully integrated center that unites gastroenterologists, hepatologists, colorectal surgeons, bariatric surgeons, clinical nutritionists, gastroenterology nurses, dieticians, integrated medicine providers, transplant hepatologists, psychologists and other specialists to treat digestive system disorders.
This unique approach to comprehensive digestive care provides each patient with expertise, novel therapies and dedicated attention. The center’s team of specialists and health-care providers coordinate all aspects of each patient’s treatment and communicate regularly with referring physicians for a seamless continuum of care. The ACDH also has numerous locations, including at Allegheny Health Network’s seven hospitals and at physician and procedural offices throughout the tri-state area.
To further enhance this patient-centered approach, the ACDH has created specialized divisions that focus on subspecialties. This allows the center’s experts to provide patients with treatments and resources specific to their needs.
