Children with Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Learn about the impact of IBD in children including the differences between child and adult patients, risk factors of IBD, and why "gut bugs" or microbes in young Crohn's and colitis patients are so important for determining causes of these diseases.

He is a staff Paediatric Gastroenterologist at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario and CHEO IBD Centre. He is the Director of Advanced Diagnostics and Therepeutics, and the Director of Endoscopic Services.
