Our multidisciplinary team—including a gastroenterologist, nutrition specialist, clinical psychologist, and dietician—helps patients manage their celiac disease so they can enjoy a higher quality of life. After patients undergo comprehensive testing to confirm a diagnosis of celiac disease, they meet with our team of specialists to plan an effective gluten-free diet. Typically, this diet will help to relieve symptoms of celiac disease.
In some cases, patients will experience complications of celiac disease, which will cause other health problems. As the need arises, we can refer patients to other specialists at West Penn Allegheny Health System:
- Functional Bowel Disorders and Intestinal Motility
- Hepatology and Liver Transplant
- Pancrease and Biliary Disorders
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
