Ostomy care is the management and support of a patient with a surgical opening created in the bladder, ileum, or colon for the temporary or permanent passage of urine or feces, necessitated by carcinoma, intestinal obstruction, trauma, or severe ulceration distal to the site of the incision. In most cases the opening is covered with a temporary disposable bag in the operating room.
The Wound Healing Center of Mon General Hospital provides a full range of outpatient services for the patient with an ostomy (colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy.) Our center is staffed by specialists trained in the care and management of patients with a stoma, and have extensive experience with complex management issues.
