The Vanderbilt Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic uses a variety of treatments – including functional medicine – to provide personalized care and management of IBD. Our team includes physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, a social worker and a psychologist. They work together to offer long-term relief for IBD symptoms, to minimize flare-ups and to help you achieve longer periods of remission.
