Atlantic Digestive Health Institute Sees Record Growth

April 30, 2019

The Atlantic Digestive Health Institute, part of Atlantic Health System, has experienced record growth over the past few years, and U.S. News & World Report recently named Morristown Medical Center one of the top 50 hospitals in the country for gastroenterology and GI surgery.

Its gastrointestinal surgeons are dedicated to providing the most progressive surgical methods using the latest technology. This includes minimally invasive surgery programs that result in shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries. They surgically treat inflammatory conditions of the bowel, colorectal cancer and gastroesophageal disorders such as reflux disease.

In order to accommodate more patients, the center recently hired H. Scott Dinneen, DO; Ravish Parekh, MD; and Nnaemeka Anyadike, MD. Dr. Dinneen is board-certified in internal medicine and completed his fellowship in gastroenterology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Dr. Parekh is a board-certified gastroenterologist and pursued his internal medicine residency at Henry Ford Hospital, Wayne State University in Detroit. Dr. Anyadike is board-certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology and completed his internal medicine residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and gastroenterology & advanced endoscopy fellowships at Maimonides Medical Center.

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Center is a highly specialized center that only treats patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. The center’s multidisciplinary team — made up of gastroenterologists, surgeons, nurses, psychologists, pathologists, radiologists, techs and nutritionists — is dedicated to continuously improving patient outcomes through quality clinical care with cutting-edge treatments and technologies, research and education.
