Focusing on Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis

ARC recognizes World IBD Day today! Together, with the rest of the world, we spotlight the challenges facing the 10 million people worldwide living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. We are excited to introduce the new ARC Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program.

IBD experts at ARC

ARC inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) experts provide evidence-based care, working with patients and their primary care physician to develop a treatment plan that offers relief and improves quality of life.

Sujaata R. Dwadasi, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained gastroenterologist with a special interest in IBD. She is accepting new patients at ARC Northwest Hills Specialty in Austin.

Arielle C. DuBose, MD, FACS, FASCRS, is board-certified in colon and rectal surgery and is fellowship-trained in colorectal surgery.

Treatment options

Our IBD experts recommend treatment options based on your medical history and chronic symptoms. Treatment aims to achieve remission and control inflammation in the GI tract. Options may include a combination of infusion therapy, drug-based management, and surgery.

What is IBD?

IBD is a chronic condition that triggers inflammation within the digestive tract and can negatively impact your quality of life. It includes two long-term, chronic conditions: Crohn's disease, characterized by inflammation of the digestive tract, most often affecting the small intestine; and ulcerative colitis, characterized by inflammation of the large intestine and rectum.

Dr. Dwadasi is accepting new patients. You can schedule an appointment online or by calling ARC Northwest Hills Specialty at 512-344-0450.
