Urinary diversion: The urinary tract diversion, rather than the bypass surgery is performed whenever the urinary bladder has been completely removed. Usually a new bladder is performed using ileum or colon, and separated from the origin, as a single loop which is attached to the abdominal wall and the skin. the ureters are connected to the new bladder, and now the flow has a different rout.
