I am headed to Mayo the end of November for a consult with Dr. Lindor about the PSC, but since I am there was wondering if there was a Crohns specialist that I could see since the PSC and Crohn's seem to go hand and hand.  Hoping someone has seen a great GI Crohn's specialist there

Since a large percentage of PSC patients have IBD, I would think this doctor would be able to treat them consecutively or work with someone who will treat your CD while he treats the liver disease. You may want to call and ask if you should set up an appointement with another specialist or will they automatically decide they need a GI "team" of different specialists.

Six resection surgeries, permanent ostomy, adverse reactions to Remicade finally off of Prednisone, back on 6MP for maintenance, hoping for a long remission from this last surgery.
