Crohn's Disease: There is no cure, but there is treatment to keep it under control. Usually the best people to take care of Crohn's are gastroenterologists, and they usually take care of Crohn's patient in conjunction with a surgeon. Your treatment will depend on your symptoms and findings. Be sure to see your doctor if your current treatment is not working for you.
