Digestive Disease Research and Care

Every day, millions of Americans suffer from painful digestive disorders that affect their quality of life and that, in some cases, can even be life-threatening. Those patients’ stories inspire the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Digestive Disease Center to advance leading-edge digestive disease research, treatment and educational programs emphasizing state-of-the-art therapies. Our ultimate goal: to eradicate digestive diseases.
