Answer

Crohn disease is a chronic disease that must be treated by a team of experts consisting of pediatricians, pediatric gastroenterologists, psychologists, nutritionists, social workers, and nurses. A critical factor in successful management of this disease is the willingness of the patient to participate and cooperate with the team.

For effective treatment of this disorder, parents and patients must be appropriately educated (see Patient Education) and receive the necessary support.
