About Digestive Diseases & Nutrition

Dr. Irving Waxman

The Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition continues to maintain excellence in gastrointestinal care, research, and training. Comprised of a distinguished team of gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and researchers, our division is dedicated to advancing the understanding and treatment of a wide spectrum of digestive disorders and nutritional conditions. Through our continual research initiatives, innovative clinical trials, and compassionate patient care, we strive to improve outcomes for individuals affected by conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, liver diseases, gastrointestinal cancers, and disorders of the pancreas and bile ducts. With a commitment to excellence in education, we train the next generation of leaders in gastroenterology and nutrition, fostering a culture of collaboration, inquiry, and continuous improvement.

The Division of Digestive Diseases & Nutrition is part of the Department of Internal Medicine at Rush University Medical Center.
