ibd

There are two types of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD):

  1. Crohn’s disease and
  2. Ulcerative colitis.

Accurately diagnosing IBD is a multi-step process involving gastroenterology, endoscopy, radiology, pathology, and potentially, surgery.

Treatment

The IBD Program, a part of the University of Utah Health Gastroenterology Services, understands that each patient is unique and our IBD treatment team providers work together with our patients to develop a treatment plan that is right for each patient.

Working collaboratively, our IBD providers attend a weekly conference to discuss the individual issues our patients face, reviewing emerging treatment options and the latest research to further the options for our IBD patients.

Our staff will help schedule an appointment at 801-213-9797.
