He is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto, former Program Director of the Division of Gastroenterology of the University of Toronto, and former Program Director of the Core Internal Medicine training program of St. Michael’s Hospital. 

Presentation Overview
The first response to a report of excess eosinophils in a mucosal biopsy is to consider drug allergy, parasitic infection (such as strongyloides), and systemic disease such as vasculitis. Once these have been excluded, the next intervention depends on the area of the bowel affected. Eosinophilic esophagitis is the best studied gut eosinophilic  disease, characterized by presentation as difficulty in swallowing and esophageal mucosal rings at endoscopy, and is treated by diet, proton pump inhibitors, topical corticosteroids, or endoscopic dilation. The choice among these is individual, chiefly based on severity of symptoms and patient priorities. Ideally, treatment eliminates the eosinophils, but in practice, improving symptoms is often the best that can be achieved without undue side-effects. Excess eosinophils elsewhere in the bowel are classified according to extent of bowel wall infiltrations: mucosa (inflammatory symptoms), muscle (obstructive symptoms), subserosal (ascites). There is a close overlap with idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease, and usually corticosteroids are required for treatment.

Clinical Interests

  • Celiac disease and gluten-related disorders
  • Functional gastrointestinal disorders
  • Enteral and parenteral nutrition
  • Intestinal failure

Research Interests

  • Clinical and translational research in celiac disease and gluten related disorders, nutrition, microbiology and gut brain axis
  • Systematic reviews and meta-analyses

Presentation Overview
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) has emerged as an intriguing and controversial topic in gastroenterology. The diagnosis of NCGS or non-celiac wheat sensitivity (NCWS) requires a symptomatic reaction to gluten or wheat-containing food, and remission of symptoms with gluten or wheat challenge. The diagnosis is made after celiac disease and wheat allergy have been excluded. This is a clinically relevant and frequent condition, and several studies including randomized clinical trials (RCT) have been attempting to characterize the condition. In this presentation, we will address outstanding issues related to the diagnosis of NCGS/NCWS as well as areas of interest for future studies that could explain, in part, the controversy in this area.

Presentation Overview
Many clinical conundrums and rarer conditions are not well described in text books and do not have sufficient information to follow evidence-based approaches. In these scenarios, clinical experience is often relied on to make clinical decisions. In this lecture, I will cover how to approach patients with minimal inflammation in IBD. What to do when confronted with a patient with only histologic activity? Minimal endoscopic findings? Symptoms out of keeping with objective inflammation? Similarly, pouchitis is a condition that is similar to IBD, yet behaves differently, responds to typical IBD therapies poorly and can be a significant impediment to quality of life. A related condition, microscopic colitis, is poorly understood and not very common. Treatments are often given through trial and error and a practical approach to this condition will be discussed.
