Stoma Surgery

As bowel disease or cancer can occur in different parts of the bowel, a number of different surgical options are available to the surgeon. The diagnosis will determine the type of operation you are likely to have. Your surgical options will be discussed with you by your surgeon, specialist Stoma Care Nurse  or other members of the surgical team.

The most common types of stoma surgery are on the pages listed below, and each section has diagrams to help aid your understanding, depending on the type of stoma you are going to have:
