In brief: Medication
Usually medications are the first treatment for crohn's disease.
A gastroenterologist will help you. Surgery is seldom used unless there is a lack of response to medications, intestinal blockage, intestinal bleeding, or intestinal fistulas. Medications may include steroids or prednisone, and others.
