Where is the best medical care for Crohn's disease?

Best is what works. Treatment for crohn's disease uses a step wise therapy. We start with one method (chosen because it is effective with low side effects) and if necessary, we move up to the next method of treatment. If the first step works for you, that then is the best treatment for you. For others, it may be the other steps. Best is what ever is effective with minimal side effects or complications.
Most cities. Most cities have at least one regional hospital with affiliated gastroenterologists that specialize in inflammatory bowel disease. I would start by finding your regional expert. If that person feels that your disease requires even more specialized services they will help you find that resource.

Hemochromatosis. The goal of treatment for hemachromatosis is to prevent iron build up in your tissues and organs. Initial treatment, usually by blood donation, will be to try to get rid of the already increased iron stores in your system. Once that is depleted, then future treatment will be to try to prevent recurrent future build up. It is important to continue this for your entire lifetime. Good luck. Read more...
