Hartmann’s Operation

by Etienne Moore — last modified 2007-04-02 18:12

This is a surgical procedure where a diseased part of the left-sided colon and rectum is removed.  No join or anastomosis is performed and the patient is left with an end colostomy and an internal rectal stump.  Sometimes patients can undergo a Reversal of Hartmann’s Operation at a later date to rejoin the bowel.
