Second Opinion IBD Clinic

The experts in the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition understand how difficult it can be to fully understand every aspect of your son or daughter’s complex inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) diagnosis. With multiple blood tests, X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans and scopes being done, it can be a daunting task to bring everything together and see the big picture. That is why UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is proud to offer Northeast Ohio’s only second opinion IBD clinic.

Whether it is Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or IBD-undifferentiated, our IBD experts are available to thoroughly review your child’s medical course, including testing and current medications. We are able to provide a “second set of eyes” to review their medical course and provide up-to-date, evidence-based recommendations.

If you are interested in having our expert IBD team review your child’s IBD case to provide recommendations to your primary gastroenterologist, or for formal transfer of care, please call 216-844-1765 and speak with Shannon Cifra, RN, to be scheduled.

Plan to spend an hour with us reviewing your child’s records, which should be sent to our office via fax prior to the scheduled appointment. Records can be faxed to 216-844-8750.
