How can we help patients with complicated IBD avoid surgery?

In this video, Drs. Fichera and Cho discuss two new classes of agents and TNF inhibitors, which may prevent strictures.

Even with proper medication, diet and exercise, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients may require surgery.

Watch Alessandro Fichera, MD, and Judy Cho, MD, moderators of the Feb. 7-9, 2019 Crohn’s & Colitis Congress® session, How to Manage Complicated IBD, discuss key takeaways from their session. You’ll also discover the substantial benefits to achieving complete mucosal healing by treating the target instead of the symptoms.

Be sure to save the date for the next Crohn’s & Colitis Congress, taking place Jan. 23-25, 2020, in Austin, Texas. Visit to register beginning June 27, 2019.
