The goal of this consensus initiated by the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation [ECCO] and European Society of Colo-Proctology [ESCP] was to establish European consensus guidelines for the surgical treatment of Crohn’s disease [CD].

The surgical treatment of CD was covered in the Third European Evidence-based Consensus on the Diagnosis and Management of Crohn’s Disease 2016. Part 1: Diagnosis and Medical Management, and Part 2: Surgical Management and Special Situations.2 The following guidelines add to the surgical aspects of the multidisciplinary management of Crohn’s disease. The present document is to be seen as complementary to the surgical section published in the 2016 consensus. Some consensus statements are modified or expanded and others are entirely new. In order to have a complete overview,2 the surgical statements of the existing Third European Evidence-based Consensus on the Diagnosis and Management of Crohn’s Disease 2016: Part 1: Diagnosis and Medical Management, and Part 2: Surgical Management and Special Situations3 are added, without supporting text.
