Changing the Outcome for IBD Patients

The Schubert-Martin Inflammatory Bowel Disease / IBD Center at Cincinnati Children's provides a focused, team approach to comprehensive, individualized diagnosis and treatment for patients with two types of inflammatory bowel disease

Our team of pediatric specialists addresses the unique challenges these patients face — everything from abdominal pain and fatigue to delayed growth and stress.

We offer personalized treatment plans that include scientifically proven therapies and an emphasis on helping patients manage their symptoms successfully. Our one-stop clinic provides better, faster care, as patients can see multiple pediatric specialists during a single visit in one location. 

We focus on all aspects of caring — physical, emotional and social — to help children with IBD experience the best quality of life possible.

Please call 513-636-4415 or email to schedule an appointment.

Second Opinions

We see more than 80 patients a year for second opinions. A second opinion from our team can reassure families that their child is receiving the best possible care elsewhere — or offer insights about other treatment options available at Cincinnati Children’s. 

If you are considering a second opinion, please discuss this with your child’s primary gastroenterologist and ask for a referral to our clinic.
