Megan Wagner R.N., CPN and Dr. William Faubion, M.D., pediatric and adult gastroenterologist, talk about medication side-effects, treatment plans, proper nutrition and remission, for children with IBD.
Doctors at Mayo Clinic's Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center for Children specialize in providing the care that children require for IBD, including diagnostic tests that don't expose your child to radiation and alternative medications that reduce the need for steroids. Pediatric IBD specialists are actively engaged in multiple research efforts to improve the treatment of children with IBD. These efforts include new treatments, nationwide collaborations to improve the effectiveness of existing treatments and understanding the cause of IBD.
