How Boston Children's Hospital approaches Crohn’s Disease in kids
Our clinicians provide a range of services and support for children and teenagers with Crohn's disease:
Boston Children’s Hospital is the #1 ranked pediatric gastroenterology department (U.S. News & World Report, 2014), which includes a dedicated team of doctors and specialists in the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center. Our world-class care team can help your child by providing individualized treatment plans and access to more specialized care than any other hospital. We see around 2,500 children each year, and our work is guided by our belief that children and young adults with IBD deserve to live a happy and unhindered life. We care for children in Boston and in our many locations in Massachusetts.
As a leading referral center for pediatric IBD, our Center is committed to discovering the causes of, and improving the treatments for, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Contact the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center to make an appointment for your child.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
