A surgical procedure creating an opening in
the body for the discharge of body wastes.
Certain diseases of the bowel or urinary tract
involve removing all or part of the intestine or
bladder. This creates a need for an alternate way
for feces or urine to leave the body. An opening is
surgically created in the abdomen for body wastes
to pass through. The surgical procedure is called
an ostomy. The opening that is created at the end
of the bowel or ureter is called a stoma.
