The University of Maryland Medical Center’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Because of the complexity of the disease, the IBD Program takes a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together a variety of specialists, including gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, nutritionists, and nurses to accurately diagnose and manage IBD.

Our goal is that people with IBD shouldn't just be able to lead more normal lives with treatment, but that the right therapies should enable these patients to function completely normally.
