When do you need Ostomy Services?

The expert staff that runs the Ostomy Program at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix offers significant education for patients before their procedure. You can expect to receive a thorough evaluation, including a detailed history to help resolve your anxiety.

We will help develop a treatment plan with you, your family or caregivers, and your doctors. Patients, families, and caregivers will receive extensive training. During treatment, you will remain under the care of your primary care physician or surgeon, who will be kept informed of the care provided by our program.
