Before Surgery

Most people know very little about what a stoma is before they find themselves needing one. If and when stoma surgery is necessary, patients may have many questions.

Our educational materials can help you provide valuable information to your patients, so they can get answers to the important questions they have before surgery. Your patients can also learn from the experiences of people who already live with a stoma.
