At Ostomy Saskatchewan we do talk about urine and stool, bladders and bowels. We are not embarrassed or ashamed. We just had a body part that did not work because of any number of reasons but we ended up with an ostomy.

What We Do

— We Provide Visitation to New Patients

We have a peer-to-peer visitor program that can be requested by a doctor, patient, or Nurse Specialized in Wound, Ostomy, and Continence (NSWOC) before or after surgery. It’s great to have someone who’s in a similar situation to talk with and ask questions.
