The Frenchman's Creek
Center for Excellence in Digestive Health

 

Every year, more than 34 million people in the United States are affected by a digestive disease. to help combat this, the Center for Excellence in Digestive Health at Jupiter Medical Center offers a variety of treatments for a number of digestive disorders—everything from inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn’s disease to gastrointestinal cancers—as well as advanced interventional techniques, diagnostic strategies, and minimally invasive surgery. This multidisciplinary approach to medicine leads to outstanding and compassionate care for adult and pediatric patients.

 

We are now advancing digestive health services and research even further through our pioneering partnership with Mount Sinai Health System in New York. Mount Sinai’s Dr. Henry D. Janowitz Division of Gastroenterology is one of the oldest and most distinguished gastrointestinal (GI) programs in the nation. U.S. News & World Report ranks Mount Sinai seventh in the nation for gastroenterology and GI surgery. With this partnership, we will encompass all areas of care for adults and children, including non-invasive diagnostics, therapeutic GI, research and education as well as preventive health and wellness services, with a primary focus on irritable bowel disease and hepatobiliary disorders.
