What Is Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

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

  1. Crohn’s disease
  2. Ulcerative colitis

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


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.
