Ulcerative Colitis Surgery

Final Thoughts

Not every type of surgery for ulcerative colitis is appropriate for every person. The type of surgery that a particular person should have depends on the severity of the disease and the patient's needs, expectations, and lifestyle.
 
People faced with this decision should get as much information as possible by talking to their healthcare providers, to nurses who work with colon surgery patients (enterostomal therapists), and to other colon surgery patients. Patient advocacy organizations can direct people to support groups and other information resources.
