Mayo Clinic researchers are working to improve treatment with ileoanal anastomosis surgery. Studies cover a wide range of areas, including straight and hand-assisted laparoscopic techniques that can shorten the procedure, prevention and treatment of pouchitis, the feasibility of reconstructing a failing J pouch, J-pouch surgery's effectiveness for treating primary sclerosing cholangitis, and quality of life after J-pouch surgery.
