Bowel surgery with anastomosis is a common procedure performed in the U.S. When the bowel is excised or bypassed, the two ends of the bowel are reconnected to maintain continuity. Bowel anastomosis is performed for both benign and malignant lesions. The module gives detailed information on preparation, how anastomosis is performed, and complications. The module discusses routine elective bowel procedures as well as emergency bowel procedures.


The goal of this bowel anastomosis continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with information about bowel surgery and anastomosis, including when it is performed and its potential complications. After studying the information presented here, the surgical technologist will be able to:
  • Describe pre-procedural planning for a patient about to undergo bowel surgery

  • Describe how bowel anastomosis is performed
