Abstract: Crohn's disease is a complex disease with a varying clinical and anatomical spectrum. One-third of patients with Crohn's will have disease confined to the colon. In this article, the authors review the surgical treatment options for colonic Crohn's disease including the current status of performing segmental colectomy in colonic Crohn's, the pros and cons of segmental versus subtotal colectomy, and the influence of biologics on recurrence rates following segmental colectomy.
