Connecticut GI provides comprehensive care of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). IBD includes both Crohn’s Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). We provide a full range of inpatient and outpatient services. Coordinated care and active communication is extremely important to us. We work closely with our patients, in conjunction with radiologists, surgeons, and pathologists, to develop a specialized treatment plan for our patients. We also work closely with the pediatric team at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center to foster a smooth transition to care by one of our gastroenterologists.
We meet regularly for a multidisciplinary IBD conference to review challenging cases and referrals from other gastroenterologists and institutions. Our IBD specialists welcome second opinion consultations from both gastroenterologists and patients.
Our comprehensive care center for the treatment of Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis includes two state of the art infusion centers. Our staff has over 10 years of experience infusing Infliximab in a convenient, comfortable and safe environment. We also provide instruction for the various injectable biologic medications. Our clinical research division is committed to participating in studies that will improve our understanding and treatment of IBD.
We are active in the Connecticut Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and two of our physicians sit on the CCFA medical advisory committee. Contact our office for further information on evaluation and treatment of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and to schedule an appointment with one of our physicians.
