Multidisciplinary Team — Full Range of Treatment Options
The Digestive Diseases Institute is committed to a multidisciplinary approach that includes gastroenterologists, GI surgeons, urogynecologists, pathologists, behavioral health specialists, nutritionists and physical therapists who collaborate to accurately diagnose and develop the most appropriate and effective treatment plans for each patient’s unique needs.
Dr. Joseph Sujka is a bariatric and general surgeon who specializes in robotic foregut surgery and clinical research. He has published over 30 papers on gut dysmotility and the treatment of foregut GI motility conditions.
“This isn’t a glamorous disease,” Dr. Sujka said. “One of my biggest joys is giving people the ability to eat again. That’s a big gift.” Ultimately, the gastroenterologists and GI surgeons at TGH strive to stabilize patients and set them on a path for the best quality of life and overall outcomes.
