Surgery last resort: Optimal management of uc requires a good coop effort among your primary doctor, gastroenterologist and surgeon. Both immuno suppressant and biological as you mentioned have their roles in dz management. Though surgery can cure uc, it is usually the last option as it has it's own complication and will change your life forever.
