Abstract:

Background: 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.

Objective: discuss the possible role for a personalization in debated fields of surgical treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Conclusions: 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. There is no room for fixed management for surgery in IBD. A tailored approach is key to better outcome in each specific patient.

Keywords: Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, surgery, personalization, tailored surgery, ulcerative colitis.
