Welcome to Connecticut GI. We are one of the 20 largest Gastroenterology practices in the nation and are an extremely unique group of Gastroenterologists, Hepatologists, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants for many important reasons. As a large GI practice we not only specialize in General Gastroenterology but in Tertiary Care/Specialty Gastroenterology and Hepatology. We have offices covering most of CT including Bloomfield, Bristol, Enfield, Farmington, Glastonbury, Hartford, Meriden, New Britain, Norwich, Putnam, Sharon, Southington, Torrington, Wallingford, and Waterford. We pride ourselves on receiving referrals from other GI groups as well as from Primary Care Providers and patients seeking 2nd and 3rd opinions on their own.
We have experts specializing in unique disorders as well as innovative procedures available in only a few centers in the country. For example, we can painlessly remove early cancers from the esophagus, stomach, and colon endoscopically for cure avoiding the many complications that commonly occur with standard surgical treatments and avoiding removal of part of the bowel, itself. We can remove 75% of “difficult to remove colon polyps” that are elsewhere referred for surgery.
We have experts in all Swallowing Disorders, including esophageal motor abnormalities and Eosinophilic Esophagitis (for which we are involved in active research and have access to medications otherwise not yet available to the general public). We provide POEM (another endoscopic technique) to successfully treat Motor disorders of the esophagus (Achalasia, Diffuse Esophageal Spasm, Nutcracker Esophagus) without surgery.
We have one of the most experienced and busiest New England practices in Radiofrequency Ablation for eradications of Barrett’s Esophagus, a precancerous condition resulting from chronic reflux disease, and our providers frequently provide physician courses to educate others in how to perform these procedures. We have the busiest ERCP and EUS programs in CT and offer advanced therapeutic ERCP and EUS in persons referred from other centers where the procedure was found to be too difficult to be successful. Some CTGI physicians have extra experience with particular conditions such as Celiac Sprue and Gastroparesis. Our Hepatologists Direct Hartford Hospital’s Liver Transplantation program. We have dedicated Centers of Excellence in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Women’s GI Health, just to name a few. We also have a Gastroenterology Research Division studying new agents for conditions in need.
We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality care for any and all GI conditions and our ability to offer services that can only be found in the very highest level academic centers in the country. We would be happy to provide your care or assist you with any questions or concerns. We welcome you to read further about our specialty programs to see if we can be of any help to you.
