Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center
The Susan and Leonard Feinstein Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinical Center at Mount Sinai is a unique, state-of-the-art comprehensive care center for patients of all ages living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Tailored, individualized treatments are the hallmark of the excellent care we offer. Our digestive disease physicians provide individualized treatments tailored to your needs.
Have you been diagnosed with IBD recently? Our Compass IBD program will connect with a multidisciplinary team of providers leading to better outcomes for you. The Compass IBD program ensures that you receive early, aggressive, and multifaceted treatment for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. This program is for you if your IBD has developed within the past 12 months or if you have a high suspicion of new onset IBD. Providing early intervention, our goal is to minimize complications and improve your chances of keeping your IBD under control.
Since inflammatory bowel disease can progress over time, our treatment focuses on early intervention. Emerging evidence suggests a possible window of opportunity early in the course of IBD. During this time, treatment is most effective. Early treatment can decrease your chance of serious, longer-term complications.
Clinical trials show that if you receive treatment within one to two years of your diagnosis, your IBD is more likely to go into remission and give you relief. In addition, if we treat your IBD early, you have a lower risk of hospitalizations, surgeries, or disease-related complications over a two-year period.
We create a highly personalized, multidisciplinary care plan for you within one week of your referral to the Feinstein IBD Center.
Our integrated services include:
- Initial consultation
- Risk profile for possible effects on the course of your IBD or potential complications
- Dietary assessment by an IBD-specialized nutritionist
- Psychological support
- Review of current medications for compatibility with IBD
- Annual preventive health assessments
