Welcome to Baylor Scott & White Digestive Diseases – Fort Worth
At Baylor Scott & White Digestive Diseases – Fort Worth, we believe in putting the patient first while providing them with the information necessary to make the best decision about their gastrointestinal disease condition. We focus on gastroenterology issues such as Barrett’s esophagus, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, liver pathology, disorders of the bile duct, large polyps, GI cancers, pancreatic cysts, pancreatitis, pseudocyst drainage, pancreatic necrosectomies and celiac disease.
Endoscopically, our lead physician, Melvin Simien, MD, is interested in non-surgical bariatric endoscopy and all aspects of interventional endoscopy, including enteroscopy, ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), fine needle aspiration (FNA), endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), BARRX radiofrequency ablation (RFA), cricopharyngeal myotomy, Zenker’s diverticulum, peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) and endoscopic mucosal dissection (ESD.) He enjoys thinking outside of the box for difficult gastrointestinal disease cases and tailors your patient care specific to you.
