Abstract

Objectives: Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that requires lifelong multidisciplinary management. Seventy percent of patients affected by Crohn's disease will require at least one surgical procedure over their lifetime. The aim of this retrospective study was to present our series of patients suffering from Crohn's disease who were scheduled for surgery by a multidisciplinary team.
