I just went through this same surgery. (only out of hospital 1 week) I had two obstructions completely removed but had four other areas that the surgeon had to perform strictoplasty on. The way that it was explained to me was that there were small cuts mad around on on the stricture and then the intestine was somewhat pushed together to make that area widen instead of taking it out completely.
