Managing inflammatory bowel disease requires a team of experts working together. At the Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, physicians work alongside psychologists, nutritionists, social workers and other experts to ensure your child receives the best possible treatment for IBD.

Maria R. Mascarenhas, MD: When you are part of the IBD Center, you just don't get one physician's knowledge and expertise. You get the collective knowledge and expertise of the center.
Steven M. Altschuler, MD: To really provide state of the art care and to be able to care for patients that really can't be cared for at other places.
Maria R. Mascarenhas, MD: By having a psychologist, by having a dedicated nutritionist. By having a social worker. By having a research coordinator. You need every single member of the team, and that's what we hope to achieve with the IBD Center.
