Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis cause chronic inflammation of the lining of the intestines. We take a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with IBD.  Our goal is to help young patients with IBD keep their disease in check, so they can continue to live full lives throughout childhood, adolescence, and beyond. We tailor the care we provide to your child, and offer support to your entire family.

Services & Programs

Infusion Therapies

We offer infusions of treatments including the new class of drugs called biologics. Patients see their doctor at every infusion visit, allowing children and their families to continue working collaboratively with their providers on bringing their IBD into control or remission.

IBD Home Infusion Program

The Pediatric IBD Home Infusion Program is an innovative new offering that allows patients to receive infusions at home, instead of the hospital. This gives families more flexibility while ensuring that patients receive their infusions in a safe and timely manner. Our program is one of the few home infusion programs available nationwide. 

Through the program, families can schedule treatment when it is most convenient for them, including after school and during weekends. We coordinate care between Weill Cornell Medicine’s pediatric gastroenterology team, nursing agencies and home care agencies to make infusions available at home.

Our team is made up of pediatric gastroenterologistsa nurse practitioner, social worker and care coordinator. We partner with home infusion agencies to deliver care and are in regular contact with these companies to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of care. 

To learn more about the program, or to see if it is the right treatment for your child, contact us at (646) 962-KIDS (5437) or schedule an appointment with one of our pediatric gastroenterologists.

Transitional Care

The Pediatric IBD Transition Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children's Hospital is a collaborative initiative in which teens and young adults with IBD, their family members and caregivers, and our healthcare team work together to prepare young patients with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis for the move from pediatric into adult medicine.  Young patients learn to manage their medical care and independently navigate the healthcare system.

Improve Care Now

Our pediatric gastroenterologists at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Komansky Center for Children’s Health are part of Improve Care Now, a national network of clinicians and researchers collaborating to improve the standard of care for pediatric IBD patients.
