The BIDMC Celiac Center is the only multidisciplinary center in New England specializing in the care of patients with celiac disease and other gluten sensitive disorders. Internationally recognized experts —gastroenterologists, nutritionists and experts in allergy, bone health and endocrinology — have extensive experience in managing all aspects of celiac disease including treatment of refractory sprue.
Specialists integrate diagnosis and treatment with nutritional counseling, and attention to bone health and other food allergies and intolerances, in a coordinated approach. The center excels at evaluating patients where the diagnosis of celiac disease is difficult to confirm. Staff include experienced gastrointestinal pathologists to aid in differential diagnosis.
Patients who show a poor response to treatment with a gluten-free diet represent a large proportion of patients referred to the center for expert evaluation and treatment. Physicians use enteroscopy and capsule endoscopy to evaluate patients with suspected complications of celiac disease.
Patients benefit from direct access to state-of-the-art knowledge on the latest advances in celiac disease research through the Celiac Center’s leading researchers, with a focus on novel non-dietary treatments.
