Inflammatory Bowel Disease Specialists
By providing a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach, our team of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) specialists help patients manage their condition and improve their quality of life.
To effectively treat IBD, patients often require a combination of medication and surgical procedures. At Drexel Gastroenterology, our gastroenterologist and colorectal surgeon who specialize in IBD, work closely together at the same physical office location. This allows them to communicate directly while the patient is being seen, which can help streamline treatment and eliminate referral time.
In addition to a gastroenterologist and colorectal surgeon, Drexel Gastroenterology also utilizes the services of a dedicated nutritionist and the Drexel Medicine network, a medical group of over 275 physicians practicing across 18 specialty areas at locations throughout the Philadelphia area.
Drexel's IBD Specialists
Dr. Neilanjan Nandi is passionate about the quality of care provided to patients with inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Utilizing advances such as chromoendoscopy to survey the intestine for potentially pre-cancerous lesions and small bowel video capsule endoscopy, Dr. Nandi is able to bring the highest excellence in care to his patients. Dr. Nandi also runs the Fecal Microbiota Transplantation program which helps his patients beat recurrent and/or refractory Clostridium difficile (C-diff) infections. Managing acute flares is important, but Dr. Nandi believes that prevention of future flares and complications of therapy, are key aspects of providing good clinical care.

Dr. David Stein's focus includes the laparoscopic treatment of colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. Dr. Stein's use of minimally invasive techniques cuts down on recovery time and allows patients to get back to work and their social lives. This is particularly beneficial to younger patients with IBD who would otherwise be in the prime of their lives.

Pediatric to Adult Transitions
Over the years, Drexel Gastroenterology has fostered longstanding relationships with many local pediatricians, including our affiliates at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children. As children with IBD grow into young adults, they continue to need regular checkups with a gastroenterologist who specializes in inflammatory bowel diseases. Drexel Gastroenterology makes this transition as seamless as possible by directly communicating with our pediatric gastroenterology colleagues.
Drexel Medicine Network
To make an appointment with an IBD specialist at Drexel Gastroenterology, please call 215.762.6220.
If a patient needs to see another specialist, our physicians have convenient access through the Drexel Medicine network, a medical group of over 275 physicians practicing across 18 specialty areas at locations throughout the Philadelphia area.
As inflammatory bowel diseases can affect almost any other organ outside of the intestine, we call these conditions extraintestinal manifestations of IBD. Fortunately, Drexel Medicine has advanced sub-specialists dedicated to the management of these other conditions. This means that patients get the best opinion available for their condition, no matter what their ailment may be.
At every Drexel Medicine office, we use electronic health records to ensure that our patients receive accurate, coordinated health care. Patients can also sign up for myHealth at Drexel Medicine, a patient portal that provides a secure and convenient way to manage personal health information and communicate with our health care team.
