Led by a group of renowned experts, our multidisciplinary care team provides highly specialized services, including gastroenterology, surgery, nutrition, psychosocial care, and maternal–fetal medicine. Our team is dedicated not only to providing the most state-of-the-art treatment, but to caring for the whole person.

Personalized and Integrated Care

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.

Clinical Trials

Our experts conduct clinical trials that test new treatments for people who have inflammatory bowel disease.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Sophie Balzora

If you are diagnosed with IBD, our comprehensive team of gastroenterologists, surgeons, and other specialists offer treatment options based on the latest diagnostic tools and assessment of your health needs. Our doctors discuss the most effective treatment options with you, which may include new investigational therapies through our clinical trials program.

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 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.

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 our East 38th Street location.

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 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 have or require a stoma, our enterostomal nursing team provides specialized care before, during, and after surgery.

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 Bhavna Sharma, associate research coordinator, at bhavna.sharma@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.
