In this procedure, the provider cuts the colon, makes a small incision on it, and attaches a ureter to the incision. He stitches the colon end onto the abdominal wall and creates an artificial opening to the outside of the body to allow the passage of urine. The provider attaches the remaining portion of colon back with the intestine to maintain continuity. Providers typically perform this procedure on patients whose urinary bladder has been taken out due to cancer or other reasons.
