Currently, only about five percent of all intestinal operations involve the creation of an artificial bowel outlet. Almost 90 percent of these are temporary and can be removed after three to six months. A permanent stoma is only necessary for deep-seated processes involving the anal sphincter.
If a temporary or permanent artificial bowel outlet is necessary or probable, we will discuss the system and the further course of therapy with you in detail.
We care for our patients individually. If there is a need to create an artificial bowel outlet as a separate procedure or as part of another operation, we carry out a comprehensive endoscopic examination and advise you in detail about the various options for creating a stoma, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.
Before the operation
In order to achieve an individually adapted situation, we mark the stoma site preoperatively. This allows you to help determine where the stoma will be locate
Before and also after the procedure you will be accompanied by specially trained stoma therapists, even beyond the duration of your inpatient stay.
