The University of Maryland Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program, located within the Digestive Health Center, is a regional and national referral center for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our staff will work closely with referring doctors to keep them abreast of each patient's treatment and progress.
The IBD Program is a multi-disciplinary practice with specialists in gastroenterology, general surgery, including laparoscopic and colorectal surgery, radiology and support services including a staff nutritionist and an accredited infusion center dedicated to accurately diagnosing and managing IBD and increasing patients' quality of life. We also place a strong emphasis on educating patients about their illness, engaging patients in management of their disease, detecting and avoiding medication side effects and improving monitoring of symptoms.
As an academic medical center, all of the physicians are faculty members at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In addition to treating patients, we train future gastroenterologists and surgeons and conduct research to improve the treatment and care of IBD patients.
The IBD Program's expertise, combined with the resources of the University of Maryland Medical Center, distinguishes us as a first-rate, comprehensive center of excellence.
