Crohn’s Disease and Colitis Center
Crohn’s diseases can develop in one or more regions in the esophagus, stomach and small and large intestines, all components of the digestive system, and cause thickening and ulcers in such regions. Ulcerative colitis, on the other hand, develops in the large intestine (colon). It is described as a disease that occurs in the layer that lines the inside of the colon (mucosa). The disease leads to inflammation and bleeding wounds (ulcers) in the mucosa. Being a chronic illness, it needs to be monitored. A center within the hospital, which is especially established for groups of diseases such as the ones mentioned above, provides services related to these diseases, of which the occurrence frequency has increased in recent years. In this center, diagnosis and treatment of said diseases are carried out in accordance with the latest technology by gastroenterology and surgery specialists.
