Small Intestine Surgery Phoenix AZ What is Small Intestine Surgery?

Small Intestine Surgery is typically focused on removing weakened or degraded sections of the small intestine and rejoining its healthy sections. The small intestine is the longest part of the digestive system, measuring approximately twenty feet. It connects your stomach to your large intestine (or colon) and folds many times to fit inside your abdomen. The small intestine does most of the work in digestion. It has three areas called the duodenum, the ileum, and the jejunum. Problems with the small intestine can include:

  • Bleeding
  • Celiac disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Infections
  • Intestinal cancer
  • Intestinal obstruction
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Ulcers, such as peptic ulcer

Treatment of disorders of the small intestine depends on the cause, and may include surgery.
