Can an abdominal adhesion be removed? If so, how?

Abdominal adhesions can be cut away during surgery. They aren’t ever completely removed. Instead, the band is cut to detach organs from each other or the abdomen wall, Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians say.

Though some adhesions go away on their own, abdominal adhesions that cause pain or discomfort have to be removed with surgery, according to the National Institutes of HealthOff Site Icon (NIH).

For more information about removing abdominal adhesions, talk with your doctor.
