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.

Patient Story: Stomach Cancer Survivor (helen Benz)

In her own words, Helen Benz tells the story of how she was diagnosed, treated and then recovered from stomach cancer, a diagnosis that took her by surprise. With the help of her surgical oncologist Waddah Al-Refaie, MD, FACS, Helen's cancer was removed with little pain and she was back to work and her active life. Helen says she is so grateful for the care she received at MedStar Georgetown because she still has so much love to give her friends and family including her children and grandchildren.
