We Don’t Lose Hope and We Don’t Give Up

At Ohio GI, we leave no stone unturned. We maintain more than 30 ongoing clinical trials at one time, harnessing our uniquely specialized experience to continuously study and improve treatments for GI conditions including:

  • Ulcerative Colitis: Living with chronic inflammation in the large intestine is not only exhausting, it significantly impacts your quality of life. We’re determined to help you reach remission and get back to the activities you enjoy. 
  • Crohn’s disease: When chronic inflammation appears anywhere in the digestive tract, from the mouth all the way to the colon, the symptoms are often debilitating. Our research team works tirelessly to give you the relief you deserve.
  • Non alcoholic liver disease (NASH): If excess fat builds up in the liver, the resulting inflammation can cause significant, life changing liver damage. Ohio GI is charging ahead to find new ways to prevent, detect and treat the disease – putting you back on a path to long-term health.
  • GERD: Patients who live with persistent heartburn or pain while swallowing know how frustrating and limiting life with GERD can be. We are committed to discovering treatments that not only reduce symptoms but prevent future esophageal damage. 

Patients in the tri-state area have the unique opportunity to gain access to world-renowned, state-of-the-art clinical trials right here at home. These pivotal studies connect you to new options for symptom relief and go on to improve the lives of people around the world.
