Surgical collaboration is integral to the coherent management of IBD. Clinical trials on reducing the risk of relapse after surgery for simple (TOPPIC) or complex Crohn’s disease (PREVENT) are in progress. The joint management of acute severe colitis is a particular area of expertise, with critical examination of longterm outcomes after emergency colectomy (see publications), as well as being the one of the top recruitment sites for a comparison between infliximab and cicosporin (CONSTRUCT) as rescue therapy.
