My name is Terrence Barrett; I join the UK HealthCare
faculty from Northwestern Memorial Hospital
where I have been on staff since 1992 and a
professor in the Division of Gastroenterology
since 2008. I came to Lexington in June as
Chief of Gastroenterology.
After receiving my medical degree from the
University of Illinois, I completed a residency
at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Hospital
in Chicago. I completed fellowships in
gastroenterology, IBD and immunology at the
University of Chicago.
I am the recipient of numerous prestigious
research grants from the National Institutes of
Health and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation
of America. I serve on the editorial board of
numerous national and international journals and
have authored more than 200 articles, abstracts,
book reviews and editorials.
I specialize in complex inflammatory
bowel disease and am part of a NCI clinical trial
for patients with colitis-induced dysplasia.
I have expertise in chromoendoscopy and
the evaluation and detection of colitis-induced
dysplasia. I am one of only a few physicians,
nationally, who have experience in this procedure.
I am available for direct referrals for colonoscopy
with chromoendoscopy in patients needing colitis
