Your child's condition has required a medical opening into the digestive tract. This is called an Enterostomy. This may be a Gastrostomy or an Ostomy. Since there are many conditions or reasons for this opening it is important that you discuss with your doctor why this procedure was necessary. You may be feeling overwhelmed and anxious about caring for an ostomy or gastrostomy.
Our Enterostomal Therapy (ET) nurses are devoted to helping patients by caring for patients and providing education to patients and families. While your ET nurse does not function as a primary nurse, they are involved in the care and education.
Please visit our Enterostomal Therapy Patient Resources page for patient care instructions.
