Pediatric gastroenterologists at Nemours Children’s Hospital expertly diagnose and treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children. Our team leads a comprehensive Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program that provides expert diagnosis, treatment and symptom management for children of all ages with IBD.
In addition to designated clinic days and education programs, our hospital offers advanced diagnostic technologies, including magnetic resonance enterography (MRE), and expert multidisciplinary care from surgeons, nutritionists and psychologists trained in the physical and emotional aspects of IBD.
Like asthma, IBD is a chronic disease that can "flare up" in children from time to time. Although IBD requires lifelong care, it’s a highly manageable condition. With the right treatment — which may include a combination of medicines, lifestyle changes and/or surgery — your child can be in "remission" (without flare-ups) for months or even years.
For your child, this means more happy days devoted to just being a kid.
