Ileostomy Surgery



Panproctocolectomy is an operation to remove the entire colon, rectum and anal canal. It is often performed for Ulcerative Colitis or Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) but may also be carried out for some cancers. The ileostomy formed is permanent.

This operation involves the removal of the whole colon and is carried out for many reasons, including inflammatory bowel disease and bowel cancer. The rectum is left in situ so mucus may be produced and expelled through the anus. This stoma is normally reversible.

This operation is commonly performed to remove a diseased or ruptured part of the bowel. The bowel is then rejoined and a loop ileostomy may be formed to allow the bowel to heal. This ileostomy is normally reversed at a later date.
