Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center

The UCSF Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center provides comprehensive care for patients with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, microscopic or collagenous colitis and related illnesses. Our center is dedicated to patient care, doctor and patient education as well as clinical and basic science research to find a cure for the disease. Recent advancements in our understanding of the pathophysiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are rapidly increasing the therapeutic options for IBD, and we are at the forefront of studying the various new drugs to treat the disease.

The center's team of experts includes adult and pediatric gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, immunologists, nutritionists, psychologists, ostomy nurses and social workers. This team meets regularly to discuss cases and devise optimal treatment plans. Therapy is always directed at improving the quality of life of our patients with these diseases, and therefore their input regarding treatment decisions is of critical importance.
