Share the AGA Patient Education Section in the December 2019 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) to help your patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) understand when surgery may be needed to manage their IBD, including differences in options for:
- Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
- Location of disease in their intestines.
- Types of complication.
- Severity of their illness.
This is the fourth in a series of articles that is being published bimonthly in the AGA Patient Education Section of CGH on what patients need to know about living with IBD. The series can be found in its entirety in the AGA GI Patient Center.
The “What patients need to know about living with IBD” series was reviewed by Deborah D. Proctor, MD, AGAF, and David T. Rubin, MD, AGAF.
