Dinesh S. Pashankar, MD, director of Yale Medicine’s Pediatric IBD Program, provides modern diagnostic and therapeutic options for children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), gastrointestinal and nutritional disorders. “We are a part of a quality improvement network for children with inflammatory bowel diseases and our remission rates are excellent,” Dr. Pashankar says. “We are able to treat our patients better with new medications and can avoid surgery.”

Dr. Pashankar says one of his most memorable patients was very sick and had been referred for surgery by another doctor. “We treated her with a combination of medical and nutritional therapy and she recovered,” he says. “She is in college now and doing very well.” Dr. Pashankar is an associate professor of pediatrics (gastroenterology) at Yale School of Medicine.
