Treatments We Provide

Anti-Diarrheal Medicine

Over-the-counter medicine can help control your bowel movements. If these aren't effective, your doctor may prescribe a stronger dose. 

Diet and Nutrition Counseling

Your doctor can work with you to identify triggers specific to you and get you on the road to a diet plan that best helps you manage symptoms.

Steroid Medicine

Active symptoms can be managed with a prescription of steroid medicine. This is often most helpful in mild cases of ulcerative colitis.

Surgery

For moderate to severe ulcerative colitis, a viable cure involves surgically removing your large intestine. However, because this condition can cause problems in other areas of your body, surgery may not cure those issues.
