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 offer same-day appointment for urgent-care visits. Telemedicine appointments are available for nutrition and mental health services.

Surgical Expertise

The majority of people who have IBD can successfully manage their symptoms with medical therapies. We refer people who do require surgical treatment to our internationally recognized surgery team. Our surgeons use the most innovative procedures to treat IBD, including colorectal resection, small bowel resection, and bowel-sparing techniques. They 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 require an ostomy, our expert nurses provide specialized care before, during, and after ostomy surgery. This includes helping you learn how to care for and manage a stoma, an opening in the abdomen that allows waste to exit into an ostomy bag.

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.

Mental and Emotional Health Support

We understand the daily challenges and stress of living with IBD, and offer an unmatched range of services designed to support your mental health and emotional wellbeing. These include short-term therapy for people with ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease and virtual group therapy, including hypnotherapy, for people with IBD or disorders of gut–brain interaction, such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation, or functional diarrhea. In addition, we provide support groups specific to each of these conditions, a buddy program that pairs patients for peer support, and monthly patient wellness events.

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 in Manhattan at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th Street and on Long Island at NYU Ambulatory Care Bethpage.

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.

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 Ghoncheh Ghiasian, research program manager, at ghoncheh.ghiasian@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.
