Philosophy of Care 

Medicine combines science with art and knowledge with compassion. I followed my father's footsteps and became a physician because I saw how rewarding his career was (he still practices medicine at age 86). By working at Boston Children's Hospital, I not only get to help people day to day, but am also able to participate in studies that will help us find the causes and cures of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Professional History

Athos Bousvaros MD, MPH is a pediatric gastroenterologist who has worked at Boston Children’s Hospital for over 25 years.  He completed his undergraduate degree at Williams College, his medical degree and residency at Duke University, and his gastroenterology fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School.  As Associate Director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease program at Boston Children's Hospital, he spends much of his time treating complex cases of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis referred from across the country.  His research interests include identifying the cause of IBD by studying the intestinal microbiome, developing new therapies for IBD, and examining the immune response of IBD patients to immunizations.  He has over 100 original and review publications in medical literature. 

He has served as Chair of the Chapter Medical Advisory Committee of the New England Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America and Chair of the CCFA Pediatric Affairs committee.  He has also served as President of the North American Society for Pediatric GI and Nutrition (NASPGHAN), where he helped lead a campaign to promote child safety by getting high powered magnets out of the hands of toddlers. When not busy caring for patients or doing research, he enjoys developing patient education materials for children with chronic illness.  These include the medical comics: “Pete Learns All About Crohn’s and Colitis” (with the CCFA), “Amy Goes Gluten Free,” “JD Shapes Up,” and “Sophie’s Science Project.” He has also co-authored the NASPGHAN book “Your Child with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.”
