8th Annual Exploring Frontiers in the Management of Digestive and Liver Disorders

March 31, 2023

LIVE (In-Person) and LIVESTREAM (Virtual) attendance options are available. 

Presented by the Lynda K. and David M. Underwood Center for Digestive Disorders at Houston Methodist

Several new surgical, endoscopic and pharmacological approaches to the management of digestive disorders have become available, yet their exact role in the management of these disorders is unclear. Providers need to recognize the range of therapeutic and diagnostic options that are now available for the management of digestive disorders and their clinical applications. This course will address the challenge of defining the role of new technologies, disease entities and therapies in everyday clinical practice by presenting the latest evidence-based information on diagnostics and therapeutics in digestive disorders.
