Modern surgery for Crohn's disease: When to divert, impact of biologics on infectious complications, and surgical techniques to decrease post-operative recurrence of Crohn's disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Crohn's disease is a complex condition that confers a significant risk of requiring multiple surgeries. Questions that surgeons must frequently answer include: which patients benefit from diversion? Does monoclonal antibody therapy increase post-operative complications? And, are there surgical techniques that can prevent the recurrence of Crohn's disease? This review examines current data to answer these questions.
