During most J-pouch sequential surgeries (usually 2 or 3 steps) there is a step during which a temporary loop ileostomy is created. This is (sort of) an opening in the side of the ileum that diverts most/all of the stool into a bag attached to the belly, letting the downstream J-pouch heal fully before it’s used. “Takedown” is the relatively simple surgery to close up that opening in the side of the ileum and “take it down” from the abdominal wall, where it was attached.
