Photo – Crohn’s disease was named after Mount Sinai’s Dr. Burrill Crohn. In 1932, he published a breakthrough paper which profiled 14 patients and described their symptoms. Doctors at Mount Sinai soon developed a pioneering surgical procedure that came to be known as “the Mount Sinai Operation.” And the influence of Mount Sinai is felt to this day. Evan Wood was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease by doctors at The Mount Sinai Hospital, who were able to get his disease under control. He took up long distance running, a hobby he shared with his doctor, and recently completed the New York City Marathon, a distance of 26.2 miles. But few who watched Evan run knew just how far he had come. #ForYouForLife
