Areas of Expertise
Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory Bowel Disease is comprised of two distinct entities:

Both of these conditions may require surgery for different reasons. Our surgeons specialize in these procedures. Surgery is performed for complications arising from the disease or for failure of medical management. It may also be needed after unwanted side effects arising from medical management. All of these may result in a severely diseased section of intestine that requires specialist training to handle it effectively. Our surgeons perform a number of specialized procedures specifically targeted to fix the problem at hand.

Both of these conditions can also be managed medically, and only a fraction of patients ultimately require surgery. For this reason we have partnered with Dr. Caroline Hwang of the Division of Gastroenterology, who specializes exclusively in management of inflammatory bowel disease. For an appointment, call direct to (323)-442-7583.
