Dr. Jones’ clinical interests include the treatment of fecal incontinence, rectal pain, refractory constipation, and other related conditions. Dr. Jones also performs clinical procedures such as upper endoscopy, colonoscopy with associated interventions, High Resolution Anorectal Manometry, CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Band Ligation, and Interstim Peripheral Nerve Evaluation (Sacral Neuromodulation).
Dr. Jones research interests are in utilizing technology to enhance medical education. She is supported by the Centennial Scholar Program. She is currently developing a blended technology-based and clinical curriculum for gastroenterology and non-gastroenterology trainees. Her future work will focus on deploying a technology-supported educational platform for providers to use at the point of care.
