Living with pain can be hard. Pain associated with abdominal issues can be nearly unbearable. That’s why Mercy Health offers surgical solutions that get you back to living a pain-free life.
Abdominal surgery treats conditions that affect your abdomen, including the stomach, small intestines, spleen, appendix and the colon (or rectum). Surgery may be needed for a variety of reasons, like infection, tumors, hernia repair or even bowel disease.

This procedure removes part or all of the large intestine because of colon cancer, polyps, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, blockages or gastrointestinal bleeding.
