Surgical treatment of Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) - Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis
The most common of all inflammatory bowel diseases are Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the digestive tract and symptoms include abdominal pain and diarrhea, sometimes with blood, and weight loss. Ulcerative colitis occurs when the lining of your large intestine or colon, rectum, or both becomes inflamed. This inflammation produces tiny painful sores called ulcers on the lining of your colon.

There is no cure for Crohn's disease and treatment might be medications, nutritional supplements, surgery, or a combination of these therapies. In ulcerative colitis, surgery involves removing your entire colon with the creation of a new pathway for waste. This pathway can be out through a small opening in your abdominal wall or redirected back through the end of your rectum.
