Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects more than a million Americans. In this condition, there is inflammation of the digestive tract lining that causes symptoms such as severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, fatigue, malnutrition, and weight loss. The inflammation can, at times affect the deeper layers of the bowel tissue.
Although the condition cannot be cured, you do not have to let Crohn’s disease impact the quality of your life. At Huntington Colorectal Surgeons, we have a team of highly qualified, experienced, and skilled surgeons who can offer advanced therapeutic options. A personalized treatment plan helps you or your loved one experience relief from symptoms while many patients experience complete remission.

The center is headed by Dr. Howard Kaufman who has undertaken extensive research in the field apart from pioneering the use of advanced minimally invasive techniques to treat Crohn’s disease.
