There are some topics that are hard to discuss, for which people may not want to share their opinions. Surgery in people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is one of these neglected topics. It is, however, extremely relevant and important to collect information about the perception of surgery, the impact on the quality of life, and worries about it.
The results of this important survey have now been published in the in the Colorectal Disease Journal.
EFCCA has collaborated in this study which was led by Professor Anton Spinelli (Humanitas Clinical and Research Center IRCCS, Milan, Italy) and which investigated patients’ perceptions of surgery and the impact on reported outcomes.
