Dr. Kapur on Crohn’s Disease [Video]

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory condition in which the body attacks the lining of the bowel.

Dr. Ashok Kapur describes the symptoms.

“Something’s triggered in the body and the battlefield is the lining of the bowel and that leads to chronic inflammation,” said Dr. Kapur. “A majority of the patients will have pain, diarrhea or weight loss.”

Doctors at KentuckyOne Health can offer expert, individualized treatment for patients with Crohn’s disease.

“A majority of the patients will do fine with medications. The aim of the treatment is to not simply get relief from their symptoms but also to get them back to normal in terms of their functional status,” said Dr. Kapur.
