Quality ostomy care can help you live a fulfilled and independent life
Sometimes the best course of treatment for certain digestive system diseases is the most difficult to discuss. Such treatment may include an ostomy, which is an opening in the abdomen that physicians create to expedite waste removal. Our Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC) nurses understand the difficulty of undergoing such treatment. They are specially trained to provide compassionate and expert ostomy care for all types of ostomies so you can live with independence and confidence.
In some cases, allowing waste to exit the body requires an artificial opening in the skin. This opening is called a stoma. In addition to ostomies, Phelps provides expert care for stomas. We also provide pre-surgical counseling, post-surgical care, appliance fittings, education for patients and family, and treatment of the surrounding skin.
