How is Colostomy Reversal Done?
A colostomy is a surgical procedure where the colon is diverted to an opening created in the abdominal wall so waste can bypass a damaged section of the colon. Patients who underwent surgery and have a colostomy often had an emergent procedure for diverticulitis, colon cancer, or Crohn’s disease with a large incision for severe bowel infection, obstruction, or life-threatening sepsis. The good news is that our providers at Houston Colon are experts at reversing the colostomy and putting your bowels back together. A colostomy reversal can be done to reattach the colon removes the need to collect the waste in a bag on your abdominal wall. We perform these reversals robotically with minimally invasive surgery so our patients do not need to have another open surgery with a large incision.
