Crohn's Disease
 
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that results from the swelling of the digestive tract anywhere from the mouth to the anus, but most commonly affects the lower part of the small intestine, or the ileum.  Symptoms include abdominal pain, fever, diarrhea, and blood in the stool.  Crohn’s disease can affect both men and women through all age groups, but the disease tends to be diagnosed between the ages of 20 to 30.  There is a higher risk of developing this disease if a blood relative has already been diagnosed. There is no known cure for this disease, but with the proper therapies you can greatly reduce the signs and symptoms.

About Us

The Center for GI Health, formerly known as Upper Bucks Medical Associates, has been serving the community since 1973. Our practice has expanded over the years from one to four physicians. CGI is dedicated to provide the highest level of care combining experience and education with compassion and understanding. We have most recently added a female physician to our practice in 2006. This has added a level of comfort for those patients who seek a female to deliver their GI care. CGI has full staff privileges at Grand View Hospital located just across the street from our office and Endoscopy Center.
Hospital Affiliations
