Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

The content below is part of the “Health Library” and is not indicative of services available at the facility.

The term inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) refers to two disorders that involve inflammation of the intestines: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis . These are each discussed in their own articles.

Another condition called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is sometimes confused with IBD. However, IBS is a less serious illness that does not involve inflammation.
