In brief: Possibly

There are many treatments available for ulcerative colitis (uc).
The most aggressive is a partial or total colectomy (removal of part or the whole colon.) this may solve the problem if it is true colitis that one is dealing with. If, however, one actually has crohn's disease that involves the colon, then surgery may not be the answer.
