Patients from Baltimore and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region turn to Mercy gastroenterologists for their expertise in understanding the benefits of Remicade infusion for inflammatory bowel disease treatment.

Remicade, used to treat various autoimmune disorders, blocks a substance in the body called tumor necrosis factor (TNF).
