These excellent 4 part illustrations from John Hopkins Colon Cancer Center clearly explain the Restorative Proctocolectomy (Ileoanal Pouch Procedure) that Mark had.  The surgery is also called IPAA for short, and the Ileoanal Pouch is the long name for Jpouch.

Hopefully, these clear drawings will help you understand the procedure, and the John Hopkins Colon Cancer Center site offers illustrations of the other possible colorectal surgeries. Their focus is on colon cancer and not IBD, but the surgeries definately overlap.

    How do I receive permission for the use of the illustrations of the 2 stage ileostomy J Pouch procedure so I can include these in an article? Thanks, Betty Swap

    Hi Betty, the general guideline for using and referencing work done by others on the internet is: it’s ok! Be sure not to copy large paragraphs of text from another site and claim them as yours (basic plagiarism). You may borrow small images from one site, as long as you link to that site. If the image is created by that person and they have a copyright on it, what I find helpful is to take a screenshot of the image, and change the cropping a little bit so that I’m not just taking the whole image from another site, and then link to the original image page. Here is an excellent free tool for taking screen shots called Screen Captor that might be helpful. Otherwise, if it’s an image you know you’ve seen everywhere, and may people have on their site, common courtesy is to link to the site where you found the image, not the site where it originates. Hope this helps!

    thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
    Thus that’s why tyis piece of writing is outstdanding.
