Treatments for Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Children

Whether your child has colitis or Crohn’s disease, you’ve seen him or her struggling with inflammatory bowel disease symptoms long enough. Now, you’re looking for answers. Our pediatric gastroenterologists will guide you through the best treatments and therapies for your child’s specific condition. The good news is we’ve made great progress in developing medicine that relieves symptoms of irritable bowel disease more effectively than ever. 

We can also recommend dietary adjustments that work very well for children with mild Crohn’s disease. Surgery for Crohn’s disease is usually avoided, as it can cause short bowel syndrome and a reduced ability to absorb nutrients. But if your child suffers from symptoms of colitis, even with medication, surgery can be an option. Learn more about how our digestive specialists can help your child here.
