Huntsville and Madison Offices

Huntsville Center for Colon & Digestive Disease and Endoscopy CenterThe Center for Colon & Digestive Disease (CCDD) is the largest gastroenterology practice in North Alabama. The Huntsville Endoscopy Center is the first, the largest, and the only independent ambulatory endoscopy center in North Alabama, dedicated to gastrointestinal diagnosis and treatment. Our state-of-the-art endoscopy center is located on the first floor, and our consultation suites and offices on the second floor. We strive to offer our patients a spacious, relaxing, and pleasant environment in which to manage their gastrointestinal health.

CCDD History

Founded in 1975 by Dr. Wilhelm Tietke, there are now seven partners who comprise CCDD. Though each partner has individual specialties (nutrition, for example), all seven are board certified in gastroenterology. The combined experience of our partners exceeds one hundred years of practice.


Our mission is to consistently provide the highest quality gastroenterology services in an efficient and cost conscious manner, that places patient health, service, and patient satisfaction above all else.
