Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Clinic

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Clinic has been established at the McMaster University Medical Centre (MUMC) of Hamilton Health Sciences in 2009 to provide patient-centered care for IBD patients, who have conditions including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. The clinic is affiliated with McMaster University’s Farncombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, which will oversee research with patients of the clinic.

The IBD Clinic works as a multidisciplinary team including an advanced practice nurse, nutritionist, social worker, surgeons and gastroenterologists to support patients with complicated or severe IBD.

​Patients from Oakville, Burlington, and Niagara Falls through Brantford and the Bruce Peninsula are welcome.
