Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that impacts the digestive tract. Although Crohn’s can affect any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to anus, it most commonly occurs at the end of the small intestine where it meets the colon. It appears in small patches and is able to completely permeate the wall of the bowel. When the condition becomes severe, Crohn’s disease surgery may be recommended to remove the damaged areas within the digestive tract.
Crohn’s disease symptoms include chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, unintended weight loss, and unexplained fatigue. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we encourage you to reach out to us so we can diagnose the issue and provide the necessary treatment.
