Brandon Street

Douglas, Georgia

At 6 feet 4 inches tall and more than 200 pounds, Brandon Street was an active young man who enjoyed playing sports. When he began to have irregular and difficult bowel movements, he didn't worry too much.

"I tried to hide it in high school. But after starting college, I ended up in the hospital and was diagnosed with Crohn's disease," says Brandon.

After Brandon experienced a rapid weight loss, he knew he needed additional expertise. He went to Mayo Clinic where doctors prescribed a new regimen of medication that relieved his symptoms and helped him regain his strength. Today, Brandon is thriving, thanks to his team of doctors and the right treatment.

"I tell everyone, 'Don't go anywhere else. Mayo Clinic has the right team there for you."
