Although Crohn's disease can take place anywhere from the mouth to the anus, the most common area affected by Crohn's disease is the terminal ileum. Other than the terminal ileum, Crohn's can affect any part of the colon to any degree. And although Crohn's disease is mostly managed by gastroenterologists with medical therapy there are certain indications for surgery regarding the disease severity and the location. When and if surgery may be indicated for your Crohn's disease, it is imperative that you seek colon and rectal surgeons for that potential surgery. More specifically, colon and rectal surgeons who have experience with Crohn's disease. Such as us here at CRSSNY. Once your gastroenterologist believes you may be a candidate, for surgery for your Crohn's disease, it is imperative that you see colon and rectal surgeons with a great experience in treating that disease process. Here at CRSSNY, we have a vast experience treating patients with Crohn's disease of the small intestine, colon and anus. We encourage you to contact us if your gastroenterologist feels that you may be a candidate for such surgery. We also are able to employ the latest technology in treating your Crohn's disease surgically. We commonly can employ use of the da Vinci robot as well as laparoscopy and other advanced technologies. By using these minimally invasive techniques we are able to perform the same surgery with smaller incisions which means less pain and a faster recovery, getting you back to your normal way of life soon.
