Pouch surgery

More information

"Considering whether to have ileal pouch surgery" is the title of a booklet for ulcerative colitis patients that was recently made in a joint effort between Andrew MacCombie from Crohn´s and Colitis New Zealand (and patient with an ileal pouch), Associate Professor Tim Eglinton (Colorectal Surgeon), and Professor Richard Gearry (Gastroenterologist). It is designed to help ulcerative colitis patients better understand and answer questions concerning surgically removing their colon (called a “colectomy”).
