Discussion of treatments for Familial polyposis -- classical:
Sometimes treatment for Crohn's disease,
ulcerative colitis, and familial adenomatous polyposis involves removing
all or part of the intestines. When the intestines are removed, the body
needs a new way for stool to leave the body, so the surgeon creates an
opening in the abdomen for stool to pass through. The surgery to create
the new opening is called ostomy. The opening is called a stoma.
