Crohn's and Colitis Conference: A Patient and Provider Point of Care Conference

Milwaukee, WI US
May 12, 2018

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two subtypes of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and are the special focus of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program. Our Program offers state-of-the-art, evidence-based, integrated patient care.

Over one million adults and approximately 100,000 children in the United States have IBD; as many as 70,000 (this is updated number according to CCF) new cases of IBD are diagnosed annually.

IBD impacts many facets of a patient’s life – our program includes a team-based approach to ensure that these various areas are addressed.

Our multidisciplinary IBD Team consists of IBD-focused gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and a dietician.

We aim to provide high quality care, focusing on a personalized treatment approach for each of our patients with the goal of improving our patients’ quality of life. Our cutting-edge research has helped us more optimally utilize current drug therapies and have been instrumental in the delivery of once novel therapies to mainstream
