When appendicitis causes your appendix to become infected and inflamed you will need an appendectomy (removal of the appendix). There are several different types of appendectomies. Your physician will discuss what is best for you.
If trauma is incurred by the spleen or it is removing too many red blood cells, then a splenectomy may be performed to remove the spleen. Care post-op is important with this procedure as your spleen helps fight against infection.
Removal of a portion of the colon may help with blockage or other bowel diseases. There are many reasons as to why this surgery would be performed and your physician will cover all the details and educate as needed.
