Inflammatory Bowel Disorders

Cleveland Clinic is one of the few medical centers in the country uniquely able to provide seamless care for IBD patients of all ages throughout their life. Patients with IBD usually require lifelong care and will benefit from choosing to be treated at Cleveland Clinic. We offer a multidisciplinary approach to care and the latest advances in treatment and diagnosis.

Although there is no one solution for treating IBD, there are many options. Cleveland Clinic physicians help patients find the most effective treatments that produce remission and prevent flare-ups, allowing them to enjoy the best quality of life possible. Sometimes this means being able to offer patients a treatment option after they and their physicians elsewhere have given up hope.

What we offer:

  • Expert consultation
  • Ready access to consulting services
  • Therapeutic endoscopy
  • Colorectal surgery
  • Intestinal Rehabilitation Program
  • Expertise with all FDA-approved treatment options
  • Access to clinical trials of experimental therapy
  • Access at Cleveland Clinic Family Health Centers
