What is a Colostomy Reversal?
Also called stoma reversal surgery, a colostomy reversal involves rejoining the piece of bowel that is the stoma with either the colon or the small bowel and then closing the site. A colostomy reversal attaches the bowels after a colostomy or ileostomy.
Who is a Candidate for Colostomy Reversal?
Anyone who has suffered damage or disease to a portion of their intestine may have undergone a colostomy. The procedure diverts the healthy part of the intestine to a hole in the abdomen wall. Doing so allows the unhealthy part to heal while the rest still performs its job of removing waste from the human body through a stoma. If the patient doesn’t require a permanent colostomy, once the intestine has adequate time to rest, the patient can undergo a colostomy reversal to remove the stoma bag and reconnect the bowels. This can sometimes be referred to as stoma surgery.
Expect a Return to a More Normal Lifestyle
Life after colostomy reversal looks different for everyone, but there is one thing everyone who undergoes this procedure can expect: a return to a more typical lifestyle. If you’ve received a colostomy for a disease such as diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, colon cancer, or sepsis and have had sufficient time to heal, our surgical center offers advanced methods like robotic laparoscopic surgery to reverse your colostomy. Our precise techniques offer a colostomy reversal that won’t require you to endure another open surgery while still regaining the use of your intestines with additional benefits.
