Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Treatment in Knoxville

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) represents a group of intestinal disorders that cause prolonged inflammation of the digestive tract. The two most common diseases are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

The digestive tract comprises the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. It’s responsible for breaking down food, extracting the nutrients, and removing any unusable material and waste products.

Inflammation anywhere along the digestive tract disrupts this normal process. IBD can be very painful and disruptive, and in some cases, it may even be life-threatening.

As Forum Health Knoxville physicians, we focus on the roots of your illness, strengthening your microbiome and immune function, and reducing inflammation. While medication is often necessary, there are many other treatment options that can address the underlying cause of the problem.
