Dr. Susie (Sunanda) Kane is a Crohn’s Disease expert who just moved from the University of Chicago to join a team of researchers and clinicians at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Susie was kind enough to answer some questions about Crohn’s recently. We used the phone interview to create a short article at Revolution Health, but I think that listening to the entire conversation could be of benefit to those who desire deep and broad information about the disease.
In fact, a dear blogger friend of mine has a daughter with severe, fistulizing Crohn’s disease. She has been in the hospital for 2 months, unable to eat. It is my sincere hope that interviews like this one will go a long way to frame the discussion of the multiple treatment options for those struggling with this challenging disease.
We asked Dr. Kane what the common misconceptions are about Crohn’s disease, then she described the 3 types of Crohn’s disease, how they’re diagnosed and treated, and the latest cutting edge research that make a substantial improvement in the lives of those living with the disease. The interview is about 30 minutes in total. Enjoy!This post originally appeared on Dr. Val’s blog at RevolutionHealth.com.
