Abstract: The management of ulcerative colitis requires the collaboration of various teams looking after the patient and any decision regarding surgery should involve not only the patient and the surgeons but also various other professionals looking after the patient. Surgery may be needed in the acute setting or in patients with chronic disease and the management in these two scenarios is different. This article will look at the indications for surgery in patients with both acute and chronic colitis and the various options available, together with the results expected. We will also give an overview of the results on 27 cases of chronic colitis with restorative proctocolectomy operated on in our unit.
