Abstract

In the treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) despite advances in medical therapies, surgery has maintained a leading role in the management of complications of the disease, as well as in cases of failure of medical therapy. Surgery has become more and more minimally invasive, struggling for a difficult balance between guidelines and personalized treatment tailored on the single patient's need. In the present paper, the authors discuss the possible role for a personalization in debated fields of surgical treatment of Crohn&s disease and ulcerative colitis.
