UMHS Home/Logo Consult Request Guidelines

for Ulcerative Colitis/Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Ulcerative Colitis/Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines Patients should be assessed and treated by a gastroenterologist prior to surgical referral. Referral is indicated if the patient has:
  • longstanding, chronic active disease and wishes surgery
  • dysplasia on biopsy
  • persistent and significant bleeding (anemia)
  • disease is refractory to medical management
If colonoscopy and biopsy were performed outside of the UMHS system, reports should be faxed and pathology slides should be mailed for confirmatory review by our pathologists at or before the time of the clinic visit. Additionally, patient should bring a list of all Ulcerative Colitis related drugs.
Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit If CT scan or Barium enema has been done within the past year, mail or have patient hand-carry the CD, with images, for review.
