Featured: Bowel Diversion Surgery: Ileostomy, Colostomy, Ileoanal Reservoir, and Continent Ileostomy Main Article

Bowel diversion surgery, for example, ileostomy, colostomy, ileoanal reservoir, and continent ileostomy allow stools to safely leave the body. Some bowel diversion surgeries (those called ostomy surgery) divert the bowel to an opening in the abdomen where a stoma is created, or other bowel diversion surgeries reconfigure the intestines after damaged portions are removed. Individuals who have bowel resection surgery often fear the practical, social, and psychological issues of this procedure. Ostomy nurses and other support staff will help individuals manage these issues.
