Pediatirc Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic

Introduction of department

The inflammatory bowel disease clinic provides professional treatment and counseling on the accurate diagnosis, treatment, development, nutrition, and diet of inflammatory bowel diseases represented by Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and Bechet’s disease. Our clinic aims to help children and adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease that developed at a young age enjoy a healthy and happy daily life both physically and mentally, and to enter adulthood without any problems.

Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic bowel disease that caused by inflammation and ulcers in the gastrointestinal tract. Chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloody excrement, weight loss, growth loss, and anal fistula can occur. Inflammatory bowel disease that occurs in childhood and adolescence is more severe than in adults, has a wider area of invasion, and progresses quickly, so surgery such as intestinal resection may be required. In addition, due to the characteristics of children and adolescents that go through their development and puberty, it is often accompanied by decreased growth and depression. Inflammatory bowel disease clinic is doing our best to prevent disease deterioration, prevent surgery, and lead a healthy and stable life through rapid diagnosis and appropriate patient-specific treatment.

Multidisciplinary approaches and consultations (pediatric gastroenterology, pediatric surgery, pediatric imaging, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric nephrology, pediatric dermatology, pediatric nutrition team, etc.) have been conducted since the opening of the children's hospital. When maintaining treatment with biological therapeutic agents, the proper treatment effect is maintained through therapeutic drug monitoring, and when the treatment response is poor, the biological agent change is determined by measuring antibodies to the treatment agent. It provides the most up-to-date examination methods and treatments, including upper and lower endoscopy, small intestine MRI, capsule endoscopy, intestinal microbial analysis, and fecal microbial transplantation that are specialized for children.
