At our center, we pride ourselves on performing the most minimally-invasive surgeries for treating IBD and other gastrointestinal issues.

Los Angeles gastroenterologist, Mark Davidson, MD, serves as medical director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center of Excellence, a department of La Peer Health Systems in Los Angeles specializing in minimally invasive IBD treatments.

IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) refers to the chronic or recurring inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract as a result of an abnormal immune response. The two most common types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

“At our center, we pride ourselves on performing the most minimally-invasive surgeries for treating IBD and other gastrointestinal issues,” said Dr. Davidson, an IBD doctor in Los Angeles. “Our goal is to help patients who suffer from IBD be able to live their lives again, without constantly worrying about the consequences of what they eat.”

Some of the cutting-edge IBD procedures performed at the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center of Excellence include segmental resection, strictureplasty, laparoscopy and colectomy in Los Angeles. Additionally, our world-class colorectal and gastrointestinal specialists can prescribe non-surgical treatments for IBD for those with less severe cases.

“IBD is a serious condition that can majorly impact a patient’s life,” said Dr. Davidson. “It is important for patients to seek treatment as soon as they have been diagnosed, or when they begin experiencing IBD symptoms, so they can return to their daily activities as soon as possible.”

Mark Davidson, MD, is board-certified in both Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine. Dr. Davidson is an Attending Physician at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and other local hospitals in Los Angeles, in addition to having his own gastroenterology practice. His practice focuses on clinical medicine and a variety of endoscopic procedures. Thousands of patients have trusted their medical care to Dr. Davidson for a variety of medical disorders but especially for screening of colon cancer.
