The IBD Program is a multi-disciplinary practice with specialists in gastroenterology, general surgery, radiology and support services 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. Our program is unique in that patients can see a gastroenterologist, surgeon and nutritionist at the same appointment.

As an academic medical center, all of the physicians are faculty members at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
