Innovations in general and gastrointestinal surgery at Ohio State
The Division of General and Gastrointestinal Surgery continues to successfully grow its clinical research portfolio year over year. Our faculty members are trained experts in minimally invasive surgery who share a focus to better understand outcomes of current practices while pursuing opportunities to investigate those that will influence the future of medicine. Our profile maintains three surgical areas of disease concentration – Foregut, Abdominal Core Health (including hernia), and Bariatrics – that span various topics including clinical innovation, education, patient access care models, and community benefit (e.g. opioid use prevention).
The Division of General and Gastrointestinal Surgery is also active in several collaborative research efforts across The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center and University while serving as home to accomplished translational science researchers who explore the functions behind wound angiogenesis and healing.
