an operation that involves the partial excision of a diseased organ. Amputation is the removal of the peripheral part of an organ, while extirpation is the complete removal of an organ. In surgical practice gastric resections are most frequently performed; pyloric stenoses and stomach cancers or gastric ulcers that are complicated by hemorrhaging often require gastric resections. Resections of the small or large intestine are performed in cases of traumatic ruptures, obstructions, or tumors.

Resections are also performed on the thyroid gland, lungs, and joints.
