Crohn's disease is a condition which causes intestinal swelling and inflames the bowels. It is a condition which is difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are extremely similar to other types of intestinal disease, such as ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
If you have been diagnosed with Crohn's disease or believe that you may be experiencing the symptoms, our Southaven gastroenterologist at Premier Gastroenterology, PC can help.
Every type of inflammatory bowel disease affects the intestines and bowel differently. Our Southaven gastroenterologist has 20 years of experience in the field and has extensive training in diagnosing and treating Crohn's disease.
While some of the symptoms of this disease can be mild, it's possible that you may experience more severe symptoms. This includes persistent and serious bleeding and fever. Children diagnosed with this disease may experience stunted growth and development delays. When you come into our office for treatment, we can determine whether you have Crohn's disease and to help your choose the best course of treatment for your condition.
We may recommend a combination of treatment options depending on your condition. Our goal is to find a solution which will alleviate your symptoms and leave you feeling relieved.
