Abstract: We present to you a case of stoma prolapse in a patient for whom reversal was not an option. Linear Gastrointestinal Stapler was used to perform resection of the prolapsed segment and a perfect height stoma reconstructed. We present visual photographs of the steps of the procedure to facilitate learning for our surgical colleagues. Our patient did not require any pain killers or antibiotics and was discharged the next day. Such simple and novel resection techniques for surgical management of prolapsed stoma can easily be learnt by residents and consultants and can provide an important armamentarium in managing this distressing complication.
