what you need to know about j pouch surgery

Even though the pouch procedure is complex and may require a few separate surgeries to complete, the ultimate outcome provides the majority of patients with significant benefits that most feel outweigh the risks and possible complications.

In addition to performing the most J-Pouch procedures in the world, the Cleveland Clinic Pouch Center is also the largest national and international referral center for repairing failed pelvic pouches or “redo” pouches.

Cleveland Clinic offers the traditional open approach as well as a minimally invasive laparoscopic alternative for pelvic pouch surgeries.
