Proctoclectomy and IlealAnal Pouch

Proctoclectomy and Ileal-Anal Pouch

A proctoclectomy and ileal-anal pouch surgery takes out the large intestine and a portion of the rectum. It is sometimes necessary to perform this surgery in two stages. This is done if the lining of the large intestine and rectum become inflamed (ulcerative colitis) or because of growths or polyps on the lining of the rectum and large intestine.
