Ostomy surgery is a life-saving procedure that allows bodily waste to pass through a surgically created stoma on the abdomen into a prosthetic known as a ‘pouch’ or ‘ostomy bag’ commonly on the outside of the body.
Ostomy or continent diversion surgery can occur at any age and does not lower life expectancy but is the start of a “new normal” life. However, as with all medical conditions, complications can arise and require expert guidance.
Whether you need help finding the right ostomy appliances and supplies, or caring for complications due to an ostomy, United Wound Healing is here to help. We offer in-person and virtual consultations.
