Crohn's Disease

About Your Care and Condition

Do you have chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea and trouble maintaining weight? You may have Crohn's disease. Crohn’s disease causes inflammation in various parts of the intestines. Painful swelling and sores can form anywhere along the digestive tract. Intestinal blockage, ulcers and poor nutrient absorption can result. There is no cure, but there are effective treatment options that can often put Crohn's into remission. Sometimes, remission occurs on its own.

Spectrum Health offers experienced, coordinated care from physicians who specialize in disorders of the digestive tract, including Crohn’s disease. Our team provides a host of diagnostic tests and treatment options to help manage the symptoms of this disease and avoid complications that can arise from living with Crohn’s disease.
