Overview: Ileostomy is a surgical operation in which a damaged part of the colon is removed from the ileum and the cut end is diverted to an artificial opening in the abdominal wall.
Your doctor may recommend an ileostomy surgery if you have:
Ileostomy surgery is done in the presence of general anesthesia. In this procedure, your surgeon will make a cut in the abdomen and identify the main segments of the bowel-including colon, ileum and rectum. He/she will then make another cut in the ileum and attach it to an opening in the abdominal wall. Next your doctor will stitch the area around the ileum so that it stays attached to the opening.
The surgeon will make an incision in the abdomen and identify the main areas of the bowel, including the colon, rectum, and ileum. They will then make an incision in the ileum and attach it to an opening in the abdominal wall. Depending upon your condition, your surgeon may then remove the colon. Alternatively, he/she may sew the colon in such a way that it can rest and heal before reattaching it to the ileum.
