Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program has a registry of over 4,000 patients who attend, making it one of the largest such specialized practices on the East Coast. Our internationally-recognized specialists provide multi-disciplinary care and second opinions for both newly-diagnosed and complex cases of IBD.

  • Radiologists who have considerable experience reviewing CT scans, Barium studies and MRIs in patients with complex IBD.
  • Pathologists with international reputations in characterizing colitis and distinguishing early cancer changes in the colon.
  • Stoma care nurses who provide tailored care for patients with ostomies.
  • Nutritionists for patients who require nutritional assessment and management of TPN.
  • Advanced Endoscopy, from our colleagues who specialize in advanced techniques such as stent insertion, ERCP and Capsule Endoscopy. All our colonoscopes are equipped with Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) technology, to allow identification of abnormal areas during surveillance colonoscopy.
