In brief: 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.

See a doc who is experienced and interested in treating IBD and IBD patients, It is a chronic and potentially serious disease; see a GI doc. Contact the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America for reliable info and recommendations of MDs, Rx options, seminars, etc.

Excellent recommendations from Dr. Heller above.

In brief: 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.
