Understanding Ostomy Care

Ostomy involves managing stomas—surgically created openings in the abdomen for waste elimination—by maintaining the stoma and surrounding tissue and using external or internal pouches. This care is vital for the health and quality of life of anyone who has undergone ostomy surgery for various urinary or digestive conditions.

Types of Ostomies We Treat:

Colostomy: an opening (stoma) in the abdomen, connecting the colon to the stoma for waste elimination

Ileostomy: Similar to colostomy, but the stoma is formed from the small intestine.

Urostomy: Creates a stoma for urine elimination after bladder removal or dysfunction, using a piece of intestine.

 

What to Expect During Your Ostomy Care Appointment 

  • Skin Assessment: We will carefully assess your skin for any tears, stress, or signs of infection, providing education on proper care between visits.
  • Wound Care Planning: Our team will work with you to create a personalized wound care plan tailored to your specific needs.
  • Prevention Strategies: For immobile patients, we will develop strategies to prevent bedsores and skin ulcerations.
  • Treatment: We administer wound care treatments, including wound dermabrasion and other necessary interventions.
  • Education: Post-operative education on caring for your stoma and using your pouching system.
  • Product Fitting: Assistance with finding the correct products for your changing body contours and stoma.
  • Skin Care: Solutions for resolving skin irritations and guidance on proper skin care techniques.
  • Counseling and Support: Addressing questions about traveling, exercising, intimacy, and odor management, along with ongoing counseling and support throughout your journey.
