Children's IBD Center at Mount Sinai
At the Children’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Center, our mission is to provide comprehensive, family-centered care to young patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease and create a better understanding of the disease through research and education.
Why Choose Mount Sinai Children’s IBD Center?
Children with inflammatory bowel disease have specific needs that require a team approach to managing them. In addition to coping with a chronic illness, issues such as nutrition and growth are among the special concerns of families of young patients. Here at the Children's IBD Center, we have tailored a multifaceted approach to address all aspects of your child's condition. The Children’s IBD Center at Mount Sinai provides a coordinated team approach from:
- Nationally recognized authorities in the treatment of IBD
- An award-winning nursing staff
- Experienced nutritionists, child life professionals and social workers
- Clinical and laboratory researchers investigating causes and treatments for inflammatory bowel disease
In its 2014-2015 issue of "Best Children’s Hospitals," U.S. News & World Report ranked Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai among the nation’s top hospitals for Gastroenterology and GI Surgery, attesting to the strength of our commitment to excellence in care.
No matter how seriously your child is affected, our focus remains the same: to develop a personalized treatment plan to help the young patient with IBD lead a normal, productive life.
In addition to clinical care, we make education and support programs available to young patients and their families. On designated afternoons and evenings, the Children's IBD Center presents lectures, discussion and support groups to encourage patients and families to gather and share ideas.
