Summary

The provider removes part of the rectum and anastomoses, or joins, the remaining rectum to the colon above it. He uses a posterior approach, i.e., from the patient’s back, that involves removing the coccyx, or tail bone, and part of the left sacral wing, the wedge–shaped vertebrae at the base of the spine between the hip bones. He performs this procedure typically to treat cancer of the rectum.
