How To Learn More About Ostomies - A Quick Tip for Patients with Colostomies, Ileostomies, Urostomies, & Continent Diversions

Ostomy surgery is a life changing event and the road can be less bumpy with a little work before you have your surgery for a colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy.  The supplies available to you are numerous and can be overwhelming.  You may never need a lot of ostomy supplies, but it's always good to know what products are out there just in case.  Also, it behooves you to have a trusted resource to provide unbiased information on everything in the ostomy world.  One of the best tips for new ostomates is to connect with the UOAA and Phoenix Magazine!

The United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) and The Phoenix Magazine are two of the most valuable resources for learning and gathering information.  The UOAA has a network of support groups across the country comprised of fellow ostomates.  They hold regular meetings and try to inform, support, and make your life as great as possible.  The same holds true for The Phoenix Magazine which is the UOAA's official publication, providing regular issues on the most pertinent topics facing ostomates.  They even provide New Patient Guides specially written for colostomies, ileostomies, urostomies, and continent diversions.  An excellent introduction to the ostomy supplies, stoma care, and practically anything else.  

The Parthenon Company is a proud supporter of the UOAA and Phoenix Magazine.  We also strive to provide ostomy information and assistance to our customers.  At Parthenon we have you covered!  With our "lowest price guarantee", committment to quality service, and getting you the product you want without substituting for a cheaper one, the Parthenon Company is the nationwide leader in discounted ostomy supplies.  Parthenon sells the entire line of Hollister ostomy supplies, ConvaTec ostomy supplies, ConvaTec wound care, and skin care lines too!
