Research & Advances in Clinical Care

Digestive Disease Research Center

Hard-to-Treat GI Cancers

Our team of gastrointestinal (GI) specialists are experts in difficult-to-treat GI cancers. Our Digestive Disease Research Center is one of only 16 such centers in the nation funded by the National Institutes of Health, allowing us to bring vital research from the laboratory to the bedside.

Interventional Endoscopy

At UVA, we’ve developed new techniques and equipment in the highly specialized field of interventional endoscopy. During these procedures, long fiber-optic tubes are inserted through the mouth into the GI tract. The tube allows doctors to insert stents into the GI tract. UVA patients were among the first in the nation to receive the next generation of stents for treating obstructive jaundice – a major complication of pancreatic cancer.
