Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Care

We offer expert treatment for inflammatory bowel disease and help you manage its physical and emotional challenges.

Advanced Care for Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease — also called IBD — causes parts of your digestive system to become inflamed, swollen and painful. At the USC Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, we care for patients with all forms of IBD. We are experts at treating Crohn’s disease, microscopic colitis, ulcerative colitis and the uncomfortable symptoms you may experience.

Our expert gastroenterologists offer the most effective treatments available. We also provide nutrition guidance to help you feel better and minimize the impact of IBD on your daily life.

Why Choose Us for IBD Treatment

Our highly experienced surgeons are national leaders in the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons and offer you the latest treatments.

Our gastroenterologists will closely monitor your IBD and watch for potential medication side effects.

We conduct research on IBD to offer you promising therapies not yet available elsewhere.

Your care team will meet regularly to discuss your health, nutrition and overall quality of life.

We offer ongoing counseling to help you manage IBD.
