The Celiac Center at BIDMC is dedicated to helping you live healthy and well, and to supporting caregivers around the world. Areas of excellence include:
- Multidisciplinary teamwork for expert evaluation and superb care of patients with celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders.
- Skilled diagnostics, especially when it comes to ruling out conditions with symptoms similar to celiac disease.
- Top-notch treatment to manage all aspects of celiac disease, including nutritional needs and difficult-to-treat cases (refractory sprue)
Our clinicians are experts in evaluating and treating celiac disease patients who have not responded well to a gluten-free diet. We also evaluate and treat those with suspected complications from celiac disease, using endoscopy, enteroscopy and capsule endoscopy.
