UOAA understands how important it is for you to have trusted information. In the New Ostomy Patient Guide you will find surgery specific answers from medical professionals to many basic questions. Also included are information and tips about living with your ostomy, and profiles of people who have returned to a full and productive life after surgery.
And in Spanish:
I love that UOAA combined all the information on the various types of ostomies in one place – the New Ostomy Patient Guide. Makes it easy and straightforward for my patients; plus, if they want more knowledge about ostomies, in general, they can read from cover-to-cover and be amazed. BR, RN, WOCN
