Ileocecectomy?

Answer

An ileocecectomy is a type of surgery that is used to remove pieces of the ileum. The ileum is the end part of the small intestine. The ileocecectomy also may be used to remove a piece of the cecum. The cecum is the first part of the large intestine. The ileocecal valve can also be removed during the procedure. The valve is a one way valve used to prevent fecal matter from returning from one intestine to the other. Most doctors will also remove the appendix during the ileocecectomy. The produced is done laproscopically unless there are complications which require the surgeons to perform open surgery.
