Surgical treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease is a collection of conditions that involve inflammation of the intestines. While the exact cause is unknown, it is usually split into two subtypes: Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. There are a number of medical treatments for both of these diseases and surgery is typically undertaken when these medications fail to adequately control the disease or when complications arise. For Ulcerative Colitis, surgery offers the chance for cure of the disease entirely, while Crohn’s Disease can recur following surgery. Call our office (323) 865-3690 to schedule a consultation today.
