S/P Colectomy for Ulcerative Colitis

Is ulcerative colitis (K51.90) considered resolved once there's been a colon resection?


  • I would say only if there was a TOTAL colectomy. If part of the colon exists, there is a possibility for disease in the other portions of the colon. May be best to ask the physician.

  • agree, only if md states total colectomy was performed.
