Faculty physicians in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at IU School of Medicine provide expertise in endoscopic procedures and clinical care of patients with gastrointestinal and liver illnesses.

The faculty physicians are pioneers in the field and have developed many of the techniques utilized for these procedures.
