Enterostomy Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

This surgery is done when a new exit for intestinal or fecal matter is needed. It may be needed when feces can no longer travel all the way through the bowels and out the anus.

An enterostomy may also be needed when food can no longer enter the mouth or stomach normally. In this case, a feeding tube will be placed to help food enter the intestines.
