If you have Ulcerative Colitis (UC) or Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and are considering surgery, you probably have many questions and concerns. Our team at Boston Children's Hospital is here to help answer questions you may have.

This site will assist you with many of your questions and prepare you for your hospital experience. We explain the reasons for surgery, the surgical procedure, preparation for surgery, and what you can expect after the surgery, including living with a temporary ostomy.



We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
