Surgical amplification of the partial or complete stomach is called a gastrectomy. Gastrectomy is done to remove the perforation from the stomach wall or to treat stomach cancer. There are four types of gastrectomy: partial gastrectomy, full gastrectomy, sleeve gastrectomy and esophagogastrectomy. Partial gastrectomy means the removal of the lower half of the stomach part. The upper part of the stomach is then connected to the small intestine. In the case of a complete gastrectomy, the stomach is completely removed and the esophagus is directly attached to the small intestine. The lower part of the stomach is then pulled up and attached to the end of the esophagus. Gastrectomy has certain risks, including nausea, vomiting, chest infection, weight loss and vitamin deficiency, and can also cause osteoporosis and anemia
