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.
