Manoj K. Mehta, MD


Dr. Manoj Mehta has been a lifelong Chicagoan. He grew up in the south suburbs and completed his medical school, medical residency, and gastroenterology fellowship at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago. While most students covet the “private practice” residencies, Dr. Mehta elected to do rotations at Cook County Hospital to expand his exposure to various types of pathology.

As a University of Chicago faculty member, Dr. Mehta is active in the training and education of residents and fellows. This includes our local NorthShore housestaff, as well as rotating U of C trainees. NorthShore now has its own gastroenterology fellowship program, and Dr. Mehta has been extensively involved in the endoscopic training of the fellows. He is compiling a video library of endoscopic techniques to bring this expertise to others outside our system.

Dr. Mehta’s interests include IBD, the bacterial microbiome, IBS, obscure gastrointestinal bleeding, eosinophilic esophagitis, and management of complicated reflux disease. He has advanced training in small bowel capsule endoscopy. In the summer of 2009, Dr. Mehta traveled to Cambodia and Vietnam and had the opportunity to visit rural, underserved, medical clinics.

Board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology, Dr. Mehta is also a member of several gastrointestinal professional societies. He is a Fellow of the American Gastroenterological Association as well as a Fellow of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. He is a member of the Practice Management Committee of the American College of Gastroenterology. He has lectured on a variety of subspecialty gastroenterology topics for various audiences. In 2015, he was invited to give Grand Rounds to Evanston Hospital’s Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology, where he received high accolades for his presentation on the “Microbiome in Health and Disease”. He has spoken at Becker’s ASC conferences on his expertise in management of endoscopic facilities.

Dr. Mehta is a firm believer in patient education and patient participation in health care decisions. He will typically lay out his thinking on a specific case, the available options, and help the patient to arrive at a treatment decision using a team approach.

Dr. Mehta performs endoscopic procedures at Evanston Hospital, Glenbrook Hospital, St. Francis Hospital, as well as at the office. Complex or therapeutic cases are done at the hospital settings. Routine procedures are commonly done in the office, where there is greater efficiency and costs are minimized. Your out of pocket expenses, time spent, and insurance cooperation is generally advantageous.
