Our Team

Boston Medical Center’s Center for Digestive Disorders is a team of renowned experts in their field. Patients with digestive disorders from throughout New England and the Northeast are regularly referred to BMC specialists.

  • BMC gastroenterologists and surgeons have trained at the nation’s most prestigious institutions and are national experts in the field of inflammatory bowel diseases.

  • We’ve pioneered minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat inflammatory bowel diseases, and are nationally recognized for our innovative and integrated approach to care.

  • Many BMC clinicians are accomplished physician researchers who have written leading books on treatment, medical therapies and minimally invasive surgery techniques.

  • Many BMC specialists in inflammatory bowel diseases and digestive disorders have served on the boards of leading national organizations and editorial boards and have contributed research to internationally recognized peer review journals.
