Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Signs and symptoms often include abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, and weight loss, and possible bowel obstruction.  Other complications may occur outside the gastrointestinal tract and include anemia, skin rashes, arthritis, and tiredness.  Crohn's disease is caused by a combination of environmental, immune and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals. It results in a chronic inflammatory disorder, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract possibly directed at microbial antigens.

Loyola Cancer Patient Loving Life After Laryngectomy

Randy Ritz talks about how he had throat cancer, which led to the removal of his voice box. Mr. Ritz's surgeon, Dr. Richard Borrowdale, talks about how the prosthesis allows Mr. Ritz to communicate by speaking, rather than writing everything down. His wife said Randy has always had a raspy voice and that many friends don't think he sounds that different. Mr Ritz urges other cancer patients facing a larynx removal to go ahead and have the life-saving cancer surgery done. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 888-LUHS-888 (888-584-7888).
