Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Centre is the first centre in Singapore with a dedicated multi-disciplinary team specially trained to manage Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's disease - two common inflammatory bowel diseases. As these diseases are chronic in nature, they usually require specialist medical care in conjunction with good inter-disciplinary care involving nutritionists, nurses and pharmacists. They provide patients with advice on medications and diet, as well as counseling for patients who require surgery.

Patients with established diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's disease or other symptoms suggestive of IBD may be directly referred to the IBD Centre through referrals to the Departments of Gastroenterology and Colorectal Surgery for an evaluation.
