Overview

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) -- including Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and indeterminate colitis -- are chronic, lifelong autoimmune conditions. While there is no cure, children and teens with these conditions benefit from the many effective treatments are available. Duke's pediatric gastroenterologists, nurses, dietitians, social workers, and mental health specialists address the physical and emotional aspects of your child’s illness. We work with you and your child to reduce or eliminate symptoms and ensure proper nutrition so your child can achieve healthy growth and enjoy everyday activities.
