In brief: Surgery
Adhesions are a very common byproduct of abdominal surgery, related to the nature of the operation, the disease treated, and patient-factors.
Most adhesions do not cause any problems. Surgery is reserved for adhesions that cause small bowel obstruction that does not respond to conservative treatment. It is speculated as a common cause of chronic abdominal pain.

In brief: Surgery
Surgery remains the anchor treatment for adhesions.
Adhesions typically recur after surgery, so careful evaluation is needed.
