Faculty physicians in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Gastroenterology inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) team at IU School of Medicine provide cutting-edge care to over 3,000 patients, from 20 different states, with IBD and other gastrointestinal illnesses. This is the only group in Indiana with dedicated expertise in inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and celiac disease.
The fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) program has performed more than 875 FMTs since 2012, and is home to the development of a groundbreaking protocol to treat patients with severe and fulminant Clostridium difficile infections (CDI) that has been adopted by many treatment centers.
Our highly skilled care team performs over 25,000 procedures per year including colonoscopy, fecal microbiota transplant, upper GI endoscopy, small bowel endoscopy, double balloon endoscopy, ileoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, video capsule endoscopy, and pouchoscopy. The faculty physicians are pioneers in the field and have developed many of the techniques utilized for these procedures.
