Colostomy &
Colostomy Avoidance Surgery

Colostomy surgery is a procedure to create an opening in the abdominal wall for the purpose of diverting feces into an external pouch. This may be required due to complications from conditions such as Crohn's disease, cancer, or trauma. Colostomy avoidance surgery can be a viable alternative for some patients. At Phoenix Unified Surgeons, our experienced team of general and colon and rectal surgeons is available to review your options and create a customized treatment plan.
