Module 3. Surgery and IBD

Animation - What is an Ileostomy?

Surgery may be required for some patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In some surgical procedures, an ileostomy may be an option. This animation describes what an ileostomy entails, what a “stoma” is, what happens after the surgery, and what an ostomy pouch is. The goals of surgery for IBD are to cure (in ulcerative colitis) or achieve stable medication-free remission (in Crohn’s disease) and allow patients to live a healthy, active life.
