Biography

Sreeni Jonnalagadda, M.D., FASGE, joined Saint Luke’s GI Specialists and brings extensive experience and expertise in advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy to manage diverse gastrointestinal, liver, and pancreas diseases.

Prior to joining Saint Luke’s, Dr. Jonnalagadda was professor of medicine and director of Pancreatic and Biliary Endoscopy at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where he practiced for 13 years. Following medical school at Goa Medical College, India, residency at Saint Louis University Hospital, and fellowship at University of Missouri–Kansas City, he trained in advanced endoscopic procedures at the world-renowned Wellesley Hospital in Toronto. 

Dr. Jonnalagadda has an extensive list of publications in peer reviewed journals.  Additionally, he has been invited to speak at numerous national and international venues on interventional endoscopy. Working with the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), he has taught practicing gastroenterologists and trainees regionally, nationally, and internationally. The scope of this educational effort includes established techniques as well as evolving technology and changing paradigms for disease management within the interventional endoscopy arena. Dr. Jonnalagadda is also interested in the next generation of endoscopic platforms and the expanding frontiers of endoscopy. The first TransOral Gastroplasty (TOGA) procedure in the United States was performed at the Washington University School of Medicine by Dr. Jonnalagadda in 2008.

Dr. Jonnalagadda collaborates closely with hepatologists, hepatobiliary, and transplant surgeons, other surgical subspecialties, oncologists, and diagnostic and interventional radiologists in Saint Luke’s Health System to provide optimal care for patients. These collaborations occur via referral/consultations to optimize and streamline patient care as well as biweekly scheduled multidisciplinary conferences. Dr. Jonnalagadda recognizes that prompt communication with referring physicians and appropriate referrals in a timely manner are crucial to patient satisfaction.
