Women's Digestive Health Center

The Ertan Digestive Disease Center and the Gastroenterology Center of Excellence at Memorial Hermann/UT Health provides a multidisciplinary approach to treating women with digestive health issues. The goals of our center are to focus on:

  • Preference for gender concordance with an endoscopist
  • Gender differences in the tolerance of procedures (due to previous abdominal or pelvic surgeries)
  • Consequences of physical or sexual abuse on the endoscopy experience
  • Women's health in GI to focus on barriers to colorectal cancer screening in women
  • Gastrointestinal complications from pelvic malignancies
  • Genetic counseling for women with a family history of colon and other gastrointestinal cancers
