MCMASTER IBD CLINIC
For many people with chronic conditions, regular clinic appointments allow for appropriate monitoring by their physicians. However, for about 1,600 people in the wider Hamilton area with inflammatory bowel disease, regularly scheduled visits do not address their problem because their disease flares unpredictably.
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-centred 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 Niagara Falls through Brantford and the Bruce Peninsula are welcome.
"I'm so thankful to Dr Narula for his help. I wish more specialists were like him. He is a top rate professional who is competent, efficient, bright and reliable."
