Digestive Disease Center/The Foregut Center

Dr. Brenda J. Hoffman

The Foregut Center at the MUSC Health Digestive Disease Center will be one of the few centers in the region that will be dedicated to diagnosing and treating complex foregut pathology. A comprehensive team of world-class gastroenterologists and surgeons, radiologists and pathologists who are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat complex foregut disease, will focus on the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernia, achalasia, revision foregut surgery, benign and malignant lesions of the foregut and Barrett’s esophagus.

The goal of the center is to offer the best, yet least invasive treatment. This may involve endoscopic, laparoscopic, robotic or hybrid methods. This center will provide the requisite platform to harness skill and knowledge across specialties – rather than working in isolation.

“The Foregut Center will serve as the tertiary referral center for the region for complex foregut pathology,” says ICCE Chief Brenda J. Hoffman, M.D. “It is the only one like it in the state.”
