Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohns Disease and Ulcerative Colitis)
As one of the busiest Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) surgeons in the state, we offer numerous options for a complex patient. Whether it is medical management of ulcerative colitis to robotic ileocectomties to j-pouch creation, we will work with you and your gastroenterologist to maximize your chance at success.
We distinguish ourselves from several clinics in the area by our results and our understanding of this complex disease. Where some surgeons simply operate, we understand the complexities of IBD medical therapy. We will contact gastroenterology and discuss our recommendations regarding medical therapy. We feel comfortable handling many of the immunosuppressant agents used in this patient population.
While not unique to the IBD patients, many of these patients are younger in age. We specialize in these patients and receive numerous referrals from pediatric doctors. In addition, we understand the unique challenges presented such as increased concerns over cosmetic outcomes, return to work/school, etc. Please do not hesitate to discuss this at your office visit.
