Your Key to IBD at Mac Kids

Outpatient Care

In this section, you’ll find information about:

  • the 3E Center for Child & Youth Digestive Health, where you go for regular follow-up visits
  • the 3E team of health professionals that work with you in the clinic
  • some of the “hidden teams” that help us with your diagnostic and follow-up testing
  • the Children’s Exercise & Nutrition Centre, where you may be sent for tailored exercise and/or nutritional programs, if appropriate
  • the Pediatric General Surgery Clinic, where you may be seen if we feel that surgery could help improve your health and quality of life
  • the Medical Day Care & Sedation Unit, where you may receive same-day procedures (such as a medication infusion) that don’t require you to stay overnight

We don’t consider ourselves as having been successful unless a child is a full participant in life.

We’re shamelessly optimistic. We know there are going to be difficult times. But, fundamentally, we think they’re going to turn out to be healthy kids.
