About me

Dr. Uma Mahadevan is a gastroenterologist and co-director of the UCSF Colitis and Crohn's Disease Center. She is an expert on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), particularly as it relates to pregnancy and fertility, and on managing patients with complex Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

In research, Mahadevan is interested in developing novel therapies for IBD and is involved in trials of new drugs and dietary therapies. She also studies pregnancy and fertility outcomes in women with IBD. Her research on IBD has been widely published in medical journals and books.
