In brief: Pelvic exenteration
There is no such thing as a pelvic "exoneration" although some people mispronounce "exenteration" to make it sound similar. A pelvic exenteration is the removal of most or all pelvic structures (bladder, uterus, rectum) for cancer (usually recurrent) in the pelvic organs (most often cervical cancer).

This reminds me of prostate/prostRate and rotator cuff/rotary cup. (right/wrong)

In brief: Pelvic exenteration
A pelvic exenteration is a surgery to try and cure a primary or recurrent cancer.
Exoneration means to free from guilt. There is no such thing as a pelvic exoneration. It is a commonly stated mispronunciation.
