Lots of people nowadays don't know how to use apostrophes, and will put one in just about every word that ends in 's'. An apostrophectomy is a procedure for the removal of superfluous apostrophes in order to conform to proper english.
A combination of the words "Apostrophe" and the greek "ectomy", a common medical suffix meaning "to cut out".
