An ostomy is a surgical procedure that creates an opening (a stoma) from an area inside the body to the outside. Examples of ostomies include colostomy and urostomy.

If you or someone you know has an ostomy and could use a little extra help and support, please join us for a monthly psychoeducational support group.

No registration required. For information, call Holly Riggs, LSW, at 215-728-2936 or the ostomy nurses at 215-728-5500.
