Treatment for intestinal strictures?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Depends

What is the cause of the strictures? If it is from adhesions, the scar tissue is removed.
If it is from something unusual like carcinoid tumor, then bowel resection. If from crohn's disease, then sometimes bowel resection or stricturoplasty. Stricture of colon from diverticulitis would need colon resection. Etc.
