Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been traditionally managed by IBD medical doctors or IBDologists and colorectal surgeons. Complications related to IBD and IBD surgery, such as stricture, fistula, and abscess, are common. For the past decade, endoscopic therapy has emerged as a valid treatment option for those complications. Endoscopic therapy provides more effective therapy for those structural complications than medical treatment, while being a less invasive approach than surgery. Endoscopic therapy plays a growing role in bridging medical and surgical therapies and is becoming an important component in the multidisciplinary approach to complex IBD. In fact, endoscopic therapy has become the treatment of choice for anastomotic stricture and anastomotic sinus. The role of endoscopic resection of colitis-associated neoplasia is currently being explored. Interventional IBD is intellectually and technically challenging. We are calling for proper teaching and training of our next generation of IBD interventionists.
