Stomach/Gastric Surgery (Gastrectomy) (Fraser Health) [English] Permalink Public

You are having surgery (an operation) to remove a part or all of your stomach. If only part of your stomach is removed, we call it a ‘partial gastrectomy’. The remaining part of your stomach is reconnected to your esophagus and small bowel (small intestine). If all of your stomach is removed, we call it a ‘total gastrectomy’. A new ‘stomach’ is made using part of your small bowel. Your esophagus is attached to your small bowel. Replaces catalogue #265495 (English) Colour
