You are an important member of the surgical team. We want to help prepare you and your family for full participation and the best recovery. The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Ostomy Home Skills Program was developed by members of your surgical team. This program will walk you through understanding your colostomy or ileostomy, skills to manage your ostomy at home, problem solving and other home management tips, as well as other resources. Watch our home skills videos to help you understand how to care for yourself or a family member after an operation.
