We Specialize In Coordinated Care

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic, life-long disease that involves inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Chronic conditions such as these require coordinated care — the kind of care you can only receive at a multi-specialty clinic. The Iowa Clinic’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center brings together experts from Gastroenterology and Colorectal Surgery to develop an individualized treatment plan to ensure you receive comprehensive and personalized care. From your colonoscopy to your labs to medical imaging, we provide comprehensive care all at the same location. 

  • Dermatology - stay up to date on full skin exams.
  • Gynecology - necessary female health screenings.
  • Medical imaging - specialized imaging of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Lab - onsite lab for quick results without ever leaving the building.

Treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is complex and may involve the use of medications that suppress your immune system. Our goal is to keep you as healthy as possible.

Health Maintenance

Health maintenance is an important aspect in the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). At our Endoscopy Center, you will receive high-quality procedures to help guide treatment and prevent colorectal cancer. To provide ease of access, we can also administer certain vaccinations needed to help avoid infection.

Nutrition logo


Nutrition is also key in the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We will work with you to ensure your diet is optimized to get the nutrients you need to stay healthy and avoid flare-ups.
