    Surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease has advanced significantly over the years. One particular focus of its evolution has been to minimize invasiveness. Transanal surgery has given the contemporary surgeon an alternate approach to access the low rectum situated in the confines of the deep pelvis. In benign disease, combining transanal surgery with laparoscopy has allowed for the development of novel techniques to create ileal pouch-anal anastomoses, perform intersphincteric Crohn's proctectomies, manage complications from pelvic surgery, and facilitate redo pelvic surgery. We aim to review the indications for transanal surgery in benign disease, describe an approach to transanal pouch surgery in detail, and discuss the potential benefits, pitfalls, and contentious issues surrounding this approach.
