Digestive Disease Care: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Recognized care. U.S. News & World Report recognizes us as a high-performing hospital in Gastroenterology and GI Surgery.
  • Leading research. We are national leaders in research and innovative treatments. You will receive the most recently developed care and treatments, often before they are available at most other hospitals.
  • Exceptional nurses. We have earned a Magnet designation, the highest honor in nursing excellence. We are the only hospital system in Middle Tennessee, one of only three in the state and among only 8 percent of all hospitals in the U.S. with Magnet status.
  • Specialized clinics. We have five clinics dedicated to serving patients with particularly complex needs: celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatology (liver care), nutrition and swallowing and esophageal disorders.
  • Advanced endoscopy. Highly specialized doctors and advanced care nurse practitioners work with sophisticated technology in our interventional endoscopy center. We will get you an accurate diagnosis and the treatment that’s right for you.
  • Personalized care. You’ll receive the right care from a team of specialists according to your needs: gastroenterologists, advanced nurse practitioners, nutritionists, specialty pharmacists, imaging and endoscopy experts and, if needed, highly experienced surgeons.
  • Referrals. We take referrals from health-care providers outside Vanderbilt University Medical Center, so you can have a colonoscopy or other needed procedure done by our highly experienced team even if your usual doctor works with a different health-care system.
  • My Health at Vanderbilt. The My Health at Vanderbilt patient portal makes it easy to refill prescriptions, schedule appointments, check lab results and communicate with your care team.
