Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) refers to a group of bowel disorders that cause acute and chronic inflammation of the digestive tract.

Our dedicated team of North American and European Certified expert gastroenterologists offer comprehensive care for common and complex inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.


Diagnosis

Early diagnosis and treatment of these conditions are essential to help patients with IBD maintain their quality of life.

Our team utilizes advanced diagnostic techniques to ensure an accurate diagnosis. These diagnostic tests may include:

  • Upper endoscopy
  • Capsule endoscopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Balloon-assisted enteroscopy
  • Colonoscopy including chromoendoscopy

Bowel disorders can also be diagnosed through imaging techniques such as:

  • MRIs
  • X-rays
  • CT scans

Treatments

When treating IBD, our focus is to reduce the inflammation that triggers bowel disorders. While treatments can help manage symptoms, in some cases, they may also lead to long-term remission and reduced risk of complications.

Treatments for bowel disorders may include:

  • Nutritional therapy
  • Surgical procedures
  • Medications including advanced biological therapies
  • Minimally invasive procedures such as endoscopic strictures and removal of precancerous “dysplasia” of the colon
