At Cincinnati Children’s, we recognize the differences and challenges of treating young adults with inflammatory bowel disease, particularly those between the ages of 13 and 18 when self-management is critical. Thanks to our unique diagnostic abilities and pediatric expertise, we are a leading national referral center for complicated inflammatory bowel disease / IBD management.
The depth and breadth of services we offer are unparalleled, as Cincinnati Children’s is one of the few children’s hospitals that offers an IBD focus within Gastroenterology, Surgery, Pain Management and Psychology.
One of our strengths is our diversity: our team members come together from multiple disciplines to address pediatric IBD issues. We are also privileged to partner with surgeons at Cincinnati Children’s who specialize in the correction of pediatric colorectal disorders. And since the best care is provided when primary care physicians and families partner with our specialists to make medical decisions, we work closely with referring physicians to plan comprehensive strategies for care.
Pediatric evidence-based care guidelines have been developed at Cincinnati Children's by a team of gastroenterologists, clinical effectiveness physicians, and evidence-based experts working together with patients and families. These guidelines are used by our care team and also help pediatricians provide the best possible care to inflammatory bowel disease patients. Our goal in developing them was to set a standard of care that is evidence-based, efficient, family-centered and safe.
We believe in providing family-centered care where health care providers and the family are partners -- working together to best meet the need of the child. Our inflammatory bowel disease specialists educate patients and families and assist with quality-of-life issues. Available resources include:
