In brief: The best treatment

Your best bet for intestinal stricture due to ibd is surgical resection.
In patients who've had multiple surgeries/resections for ibd, stricturoplasty , where the inflammatory stricture is opened but not resected, may be an option.Still, surgical intervention will be necessary. Good luck.

In brief: Dilation

Endoscopic dilation is a small possibility but likely you will require surgery.
