Ostomy Services

St. Luke's Ostomy Services are designed to meet the needs of cancer survivors who are also ostomates. Not all ostomates had cancer, but an ostomy is sometimes the result of surgical intervention in cancer treatment. Many times, these patients have problems adjusting to surgery and need professional help to identify and resolve the variety of physical and behavioral problems they experience including:
  • Assessment of the person's physical, emotional and social needs
  • Continuing instruction for self-care and health management
  • Counseling and referrals to other appropriate resources
St. Luke's Hospital is supportive of providing information for ostomates. Ostomy Services hosts the United Ostomy Association of Greater St. Louis (UOASL) support meetings on the first Monday of the month:

EVEN months meet at 7 p.m.
ODD months meet at 2 p.m.

Meetings are for those who have had colostomies, ileostomies, urostomies or alternate procedures and to meet others who share similar challenges. The forum also provides an opportunity to share ideas, knowledge and coping techniques. Spouses and significant others are welcome.

For more information on St. Luke's Ostomy Services or lectures and meetings, call Colleen Cole, RN, MSN, WOCN or Beverly Pool, RN, ET Monday through Friday at 314-205-6431.
