At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we offer a variety of advanced procedures and personalized treatment. We are leaders in the field of endoluminal, incisionless fundoplication and have performed over 500 laproscopic antireflux operations; laparoscopic repair has been the standard here for fifteen years. We were the first center in the U.S. to perform the Esophyx and thus have the longest experience of any American center for this type of treatment for GERD.
Also, in accordance with the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) and American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) we have developed a “fast-track” methodology to coordinate care for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease, chronic diarrhea, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, Hepatitis C and abnormal liver function tests.
In 2014, Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center received the "2014 Gastrointestinal Care Excellence Award" from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals. The award recognizes hospitals for superior outcomes in bowel obstruction treatment, colorectal surgeries, gallbladder removal, esophageal/stomach surgeries, treatment of gastrointestinal bleeds, treatment for pancreatitis, and small intestine surgeries. Patients who have these treatments or surgeries at these nationally recognized hospitals have a lower risk of dying or experiencing a complication during their hospital stay.
