Our group includes faculty members who are specialty-trained in the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis (UC), and microscopic colitis (lymphocytic colitis and collagenous colitis).
As part of a multidisciplinary team of physicians and allied providers who are focused on IBD, we provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment to IBD patients at the University of Colorado Hospital Crohn’s and Colitis Center. We provide expert consultation on IBD cases referred from both primary care physicians and gastroenterologists throughout Denver and the Rocky Mountain region. We also review complicated cases at our weekly multidisciplinary IBD conference, which includes IBD specialists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists.
A major part of our mission as a tertiary referral center for IBD in the Rocky Mountain region is to conduct cutting-edge research into the causes and treatment of IBD. Our clinical activities are integrated very closely with a variety of research initiatives. Our faculty members conduct basic research that investigates novel pathways relevant to human disease and also collaborate in major clinical research trials of the newest therapies for both Crohn’s disease and UC.
