Pouch surgery

More information

"Considering whether to have ileal pouch surgery" is a booklet for ulcerative colitis patients which was recently made in a joint effort between Dr Andrew McCombie, Crohn ́s and Colitis New Zealand (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 these questions on surgically removing their colon (called a “colectomy”).
