Crohn’s Disease can be diagnosed and treated by the proctologists at the Proctology Institute of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, or Huntington Beach. Crohn’s Disease is diagnosed by our doctors with an EGD/colonoscopy with biopsy by the best in class proctologist and evaluated by a pathologist. A special test called a “capsule endoscopy” may be performed by the specialist to evaluate the small intestine.
What is Crohn’s Disease?
Crohn’s Disease, also known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that can involve the entire gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the perianal region around the anal opening. Although irritation can arise anywhere along the GI tract, the inflammation most commonly appears at first in the last portion of the small intestine, called the terminal ileum.
Crohn’s Disease is a fistulizing disease where abnormal connections are developed either within the gastrointestinal tract or between the gastrointestinal tract and other adjoining structures such as the colon, bladder, vagina, and others.
What are the symptoms of Crohn’s Disease? Symptoms of Crohn’s Disease can vary from patient to patient, and may include:
- Abdominal pain
- Anal pain
- Weight loss
- Rectal abscess
- Anal fissure
- Skin lesions
- Anal skin tags
How is Crohn’s Disease treated at the Proctology Institute? There is currently no cure for Crohn’s Disease, but drug therapy is generally considered a good choice to improve symptoms. Other options may include one or more of the following treatments:
- Medications, both oral and intravenous
- Dietary changes to minimize inflammation
- Surgery to correct the complications of the disease
