In brief: Surgery

Intestinal atresia is a blockage or non union of intestine that occurs prior to birth.
Surgery puts the intestine in continuity as it should so that eating and digestion can occur. Normal eating cannot occur until blockage is repaired.

In brief: Surgical resection

Intestinal atresia is usually treated with surgical resection of the atretic segment and re-anastomosis to establish continuity of the intestinal tract.
