IBD Program

Our newly created Joint Penn-CHOP Center for Digestive, Liver and Pancreatic Medicine has a number of programs, especially a focus in IBD. Our goal is to bring our CHOP and Penn gastroenterologists, surgeons, nutritionists and nurses together to deliver outstanding care on behalf of patients with IBD who are making the transition from adolescence to young adulthood (age 18), who remain in the Delaware Valley region and who come to this region for various reasons related to college, professional careers and family reasons.
