Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center

NYU Langone’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center offers state-of-the-art, advanced care. Our team of experts—including medical, surgical, nutrition, and psychosocial specialists—is dedicated to a personalized and compassionate approach to diagnosing, treating, and caring for adults and adolescents who are living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

NYU Langone specialists provide care for children who have IBD through the Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.

Integrated and Compassionate Care

At NYU Langone, we believe in caring for the whole person. We work with each person diagnosed with IBD to assess his or her needs and provide treatment options intended to be the most effective for that individual patient.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Sophie Balzora

People who are living with IBD—including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis—need and deserve a multidisciplinary team of specialists dedicated to partnering with them in their care. Our comprehensive team works with you to ensure that you receive high-quality, personalized treatment options, provided in an integrated and compassionate manner.

We welcome patients from around the world. Experts at our international services program can help arrange your visit and coordinate services.

High-Tech, Comfortable Endoscopy Suite

We provide colonoscopy and other gastrointestinal procedures in a state-of-the-art endoscopy suite, conveniently located on the same floor as our physician offices. 

Our gastroenterologists use the most advanced technologies to provide superior endoscopy screening and therapy. Because the comfort of our patients is a priority, we offer amenities such as a non-oral, same-day colon irrigation prep option for colonoscopy; your choice of music during the procedure; warmed blankets and robes; and colonoscopy shorts to make the experience more comfortable, and a little less stressful.

Our Surgical Expertise

We offer expert surgical care for adults and adolescents who have IBD, including pelvic pouch and reconstructive procedures. Our experts also perform J-pouch redo procedures to manage and repair complications from previous surgery. Members of our enterostomal nursing team provide specialized care before, during, and after surgery.

Our Research

At NYU Langone, we provide 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.

In addition, our basic science and translational research efforts—particularly in the areas of the gut microbiome, immunology, and microbiology—are contributing to the scientific advancement in the development, prevention, and treatment of IBD, and to the promise of more effective treatment strategies for future patients.
