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.
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.
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.
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.
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 email@example.com.
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.
