The Center for Gastroenterology offers a full range of services and consultation in digestive diseases for disease such as colitis, irritable bowel, reflux (GERD), ulcers and Crohn’s disease. Dr.Kosche is highly proficient in GI procedures including colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. We strongly urge everyone over the age of 50, or those with family histories, to have their screening colonoscopy. It can save your life! We also treat liver diseases and have extensive experience in the treatment of Hepatitis C. We can provide further referrals, recommendations and assistance to other specialists should treatments or procedures such as surgery be required.

Dr. Kosche has experience with fecal transplantation to treat refractory clostridium difficile colitis. A new study from the New England Journal of Medicine (January 16, 2013) found fecal transplants cured 15 of 16 people who had had multiple relapses of Clostridium difficile colitis, whereas antibiotics cured only 7 of 26 patients. The treatment appears to work by restoring the gut’s normal balance of healthy bacteria.


Dr. Kosche has a special interest in Bariatric Surgery. Dr. Kosche has undergone bariatric surgery herself and is a firm believer in the benefits of this process. She is available for consultation in this area as well.

Dr. Kosche remains actively committed to research, and is an investigator with Broward Research Group. She oversees clinical trials which are hoped to find new treatment methods for gastroenterologic diseases.
