Despite the great advances in medical management of in flammatory bowel disease, an estimated 50–74 % of Crohn’s patients require surgery 10 years after the diagnosis. Of these, many will require repeat surgery, and the specialist coloproctologist may develop a reputation for the super-specialized surgical treatment of these complicated patients. This chapter discusses the epidemiological and clinical risk factors associated with the need for reoperative surgery and the surgical options available along with their reported outcomes and complications.
