Three basic types of Ostomy Surgery:
Colostomy - a surgically created opening in the colon (large intestine) to permit the elimination of body waste. The consistency and frequency of discharge from a colostomy will vary, depending on its location in the colon.
Ileostomy - created by bringing a portion of the ileum (small intestine) through an opening in the abdomen. Discharge is fairly constant and watery, and contains large amounts of salt and digestive enzymes.
Urostomy (or urinary diversion) - performed when urine must be diverted from its usual route to the surface of the abdomen. The urinary bladder is either bypassed or removed.
