Abdominal pain, cramping, fatigue, skin ulcers, constipation, joint pain and unintentional weight loss are some of the signs of an inflammatory bowel disorder. Finding the right care for your inflammatory bowel disorder can be difficult and time consuming. These disorders arise when your immune system has an abnormal response to the gastrointestinal tract, often causing severe inflammation and discomfort.
Gastroenterologists in the Sutter Health network utilize advanced surgical techniques, nutrition counseling, alternative and complementary medicine, psychiatric counseling, interventional endoscopy and motility and neurogastroenterology procedures to get you on the path to better health. At Mills-Peninsula Medical Center we offer infusion services that can help reduce inflammation and joint pain associated with inflammatory bowel disorder and other gastrointestinal problems.
