Surgery Grand Rounds, Tim Sadiq, "Ulcerative Colitis: Should We Be Operating Earlier?"

Traditionally, surgery has been used as a "last resort" in the management of Ulcerative Colitis after failure of medical therapy. Despite a multitude of new expensive medications coming to market over the years the colectomy rate remains essentially unchanged. It is time to re-evaluate the role of surgery in the management of Ulcerative Colitis particularly because the disease predominately affects young people and surgery is curative.
