Offering Relief from Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn’s Diseases
Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s are both inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, and fatigue. Ulcerative colitis affects only the inner lining of the colon, while Crohn’s can affect the entire wall as well as the entire digestive tract. Treatments include Aminosalicylates (5-ASAs), steroids, immunosuppresants, and biologic therapy (infusion and injection).
Intravenous infusions, and therapeutic injections work with the body’s immune system to target inflammation in your digestive tract. They have been proven to maintain remission, and reduce or completely eliminate symptoms. Please ask one of our physicians or physician assistants about this treatment, if you have been diagnosed with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis. We can discuss treatment options that best suit your individual needs.
