What Is An Ostomy
An ostomy pouching system is a prosthetic medical device that provides a means for the collection of waste from a surgically diverted biological system and the creation of a stoma. Pouching systems are most commonly associated with colostomies, ileostomies, and urostomies.
Our Meet and Greets are a wonderful way to connect with other ostomates. Allowing vital communication with others that may potentially answer questions about your specific ostomy journey.
