The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program at the University of Maryland Medical Center champions the idea that people with IBD shouldn't just be able to lead more normal lives with treatment, but that the right therapies should enable patients to function completely normally.

The IBD Program places a strong emphasis on educating patients about their illness, engaging patients in management of their disease, detecting and avoiding medication side effects, and improving monitoring of symptoms.

The quality of your care is our number one goal. We want to partner with you to make sure you have the best quality of life possible. In addition, our staff works closely with referring doctors to keep them abreast of your treatment and progress.

Join our Online Support Group!

The University of Maryland Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program online support group is available through Facebook as a "closed" group. If you are interested in joining our private group, which cannot be viewed by non-members, please contact the IBD office at 410-706-3387.

We also encourage you and your family to become members of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA). The CCFA is a very helpful resource for anyone living with IBD.
