Kian Keyashian

Gastroenterologist, Inflammatory bowel disease specialist

Bio:   The management of inflammatory bowel disease has changed dramatically especially over the past 5-10 years, with the introduction of biologic and small molecule therapies and new goals of treatment, with an emphasis on healing the bowel. My career goal since my graduation from IBD fellowship in 2012 has been to improve the outcomes and quality of life of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. In line with these goals, my research has focused investigating new noninvasive diagnostic test, finding factors early in the disease course that might predict a more aggressive disease course and need for different therapies, and investigating new promising effective medications with less side effects.

Dr. Keyashian was fantastic. He sensed my fear, talked softly with me (vs. his "lecture voice" I've known him to use with other less fearful patients).
