Ostomy Care Services

At the University of Chicago Medicine, we provide care and support for patients living with stomas as well as those considering ostomy surgery. Our advanced practice nurses, certified in ostomy and wound care, work with children and adults anticipating the creation of an ileostomy or colostomy. Our team provides post-operative education and care to patients who have recently undergone surgery. We also see patients living with stomas who need additional assistance and/or are interested in updates to ostomy management systems.   

We believe that all people who undergo ostomy surgery should have access to a specialized ostomy nurse to help with the adaptation and adjustments that are necessary following surgery.
