A thorough review of the operative techniques as well as the indications, pitfalls, strategies and timing, complications, and long term results involved in the surgical treatment of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's Disease. As IBD is characterised by a high incidence of re-operations and complications, independent sections of the text are devoted entirely to surgical treatment of specific complications and the management of recurrent diseases. Exquisitely illustrated with over 200 line drawings, this book contains important information on medical treatment, endoscopic evaluation, pathology, radiology, and aetiology.
