St. Luke’s Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center specializes in helping patients before and after ostomy surgery with clinical
support and education. Our nationally certified WOC nurses work with multidisciplinary
teams to help patients with stoma optimize their quality of life by providing
educational resources, managing ongoing clinical support and answering
questions and concerns.
Our services include a range of medical and behavioral therapies, as well
as social and emotional support. We begin with a thorough evaluation,
including a patient history and physical examination. Many patients require
a urodynamic evaluation, which might include a cystometrogram, urethral
pressure profile, electromyography and voiding flow rate. There are many
different degrees and combinations of incontinence; your physician will
consider the severity of leakage, your age, your tolerance of treatment
and your lifestyle, along with the results of your physical exam and evaluation,
to create a treatment plan.
