St. Luke’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Helping patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease manage their symptoms, restore bowel function and improve quality of life

St. Luke’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) specialists provide focused and coordinated long-term care for patients with chronic gastrointestinal (GI) tract inflammation. Our fellowship-trained IBD specialists are at the forefront of care that ensures each patient receives the most up-to-date, evidence-based treatment options.

IBD, a term for two conditions – Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, is a complex autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissues. IBD inflammation results in damage to the GI tract and is characterized by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract with symptoms, including frequent diarrhea, urgency, bleeding and abdominal pain.

Because IBD has no cure, our compassionate physicians are by your side, guiding you in managing your condition throughout your lifetime. We help you attain a higher quality of life by minimizing painful and embarrassing symptoms, such as frequent diarrhea, abdominal pain, bleeding and urgency.

Our IBD specialists work with fellow gastroenterologists, colon & rectal surgeons, dietitians and nurses with an interest and experience in treating IBD patients.
