Our mission is not only to make an accurate diagnosis and offer the most advanced treatment options, but also to care for the whole person.

IBD is a complex, often lifelong condition, and we are dedicated to partnering with you in your care. At every step, we work together with you to develop a personalized plan for optimal treatment, health, and wellbeing.

 

If you receive an IBD diagnosis, our comprehensive team of gastroenterologists, surgeons, and other specialists offer treatment options based on the latest diagnostic tools, scientific innovations, and assessment of your health needs.

People living with IBD need and deserve a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team of experts who are dedicated to their care. This is why we coordinate your treatment across all NYU Langone services and specialties, including radiology, dermatology, rheumatology, ostomy care, and pediatric gastroenterology.

We also offer in-person and telemedicine appointments with our nutritionists and physician assistants (PAs) and same-day urgent care visits with our doctors and PAs.

Our Specialized Programs

We provide specialized programs for people at specific stages in life. Our preconception program provides care to women who have IBD and wish to become pregnant. Partnering with you and your obstetrician–gynecologist, we ensure you receive treatment that supports fertility, conception, pregnancy, and your own health and post-pregnancy needs.

As part of our pediatric transition program, we work with adolescents and young adults who are ready to move from our Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program—part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone—or other pediatric IBD programs, to adult care for IBD.

Comprehensive Care in One Location

Our newly designed, state-of-the-art center offers the comfort and convenience of receiving all of your care in one dedicated space. You can see your gastroenterologist or surgeon, receive an infusion, or participate in one-on-one counseling or a support group at a single location. Our spacious and private infusion bays can accommodate visitors and are equipped with warmed blankets and televisions. In addition, a quiet room is available for meditation.

In addition to our East 33rd Street location, our experts provide care at other locations in Manhattan—including the Joan H. Tisch Center for Women’s Health, NYU Langone Ambulatory Care West Side, the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Health—and on Long Island at NYU Langone Nassau Gastroenterology Associates.

High-Tech and Comfortable Endoscopy Suite

Colonoscopy exams and other routine procedures are an important part of IBD care. We provide colonoscopy and other gastrointestinal procedures in our endoscopy suite, which is located at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th Street.

Our gastroenterologists use the most advanced technologies available to provide superior endoscopy screening, diagnosis, and treatment. Procedures we perform include colonoscopy, chromoendoscopy, upper endoscopy, capsule endoscopy, and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of precancerous lesions. We also offer amenities such as choice of music during procedures, warmed blankets and robes, and colonoscopy shorts to make your experience more comfortable.

Surgical Expertise

Under the leadership of Feza Remzi, MD, our surgical team uses the most innovative procedures to treat people with IBD, including colorectal resection, small bowel resection, and bowel-sparing techniques. Our surgeons are renowned for their skill and expertise in pelvic pouch reconstructive procedures and J-pouch redo procedures, which may be recommended to repair complications from previous surgery.

For people who require an ostomy, our expert nurses provide specialized care before, during, and after ostomy surgery. This includes helping you learn how to care for and manage a stoma, an opening in the abdomen that allows waste to exit into an ostomy bag.

Research and Clinical Trials

At NYU Langone, we provide access to a full range of clinical trials in the treatment of IBD, making new investigational therapies available to our patients who have Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. To learn more about any of our current trials, contact Ghoncheh Ghiasian, research program manager, at ghoncheh.ghiasian@nyulangone.org.

In addition, our basic science and translational research—particularly in the areas of personalized treatment options, biomarkers, and infectious triggers of IBD—contributes to advancements in the prevention of IBD and the development of more effective treatments.
