Inflammatory Bowel Disease Subspecialty

The inflammatory bowel disease subspecialty group is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of the inflammatory bowel diseases, including ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease and pouchitis. This Clinic also provides diagnosis and treatment for patients with microscopic colitis, lymphocytic colitis and collagenous colitis.

Services provided include advanced medical diagnosis and care by gastroenterologists whose practices are focused on inflammatory bowel disease; surgical consultation and treatment by colon and rectal surgeons who are very experienced in operating on patients who have ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease; and specialized gastrointestinal radiologists and pathologists who have a high level of expertise in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

In addition to routine clinical care for patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic is actively involved in research and can provide investigational drug therapy with a variety of drugs for patients who do not respond to standard medical therapy.

Mayo's Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center for Children is committed to a compassionate and integrated approach to medical and surgical management of IBD, growth and bone development, and psychosocial issues.
