Crohn’s breakthrough surgery offers hope for ‘drug-free’ life

The question that I have is that if one patient is enough to make such a claim and how long do they have to monitor this patient post surgery before they can claim that he doesn't need any more medication. But a bold claim and if the implant keeps on working for the rest of life, then hope for the millions of sufferers.
