Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Clinic
The incidence of childhood IBD is growing and the age of onset of this disease is earlier. In addition, often the most severe cases are seen in children and this condition can affect growth, puberty and have great psychosocial impact. There is currently no cure for this disease, but with current research studies and nationwide networking, we are working towards improving the lives of our patients through a multidisciplinary approach to care and disease management.
Our mission is to provide excellent, personalized, multidisciplinary care to pediatric patients with IBD through the utilization of cutting edge therapies, education programs, community and parent support groups, research (including multicenter collaborations) and pathways to transition to adult care while remaining at the forefront of global policy and practice change.
During your visit, you will meet multiple members of our healthcare team, which could include board certified physicians, a clinical psychologist, registered nurses, medical assistants and registered dietitians. Each of these experts has completed specialty training in pediatrics, and they know how to care for both the disease and the unique needs of children and young adults.
