We welcome patients with a new or existing colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy, and their family and friends, to monthly meetings of the Massachusetts General Hospital Ostomy Support Group.

Hosted by ostomy nurses from the Massachusetts General Hospital Digestive Healthcare Center, meetings of the Mass General Ostomy Support Group present an open and inviting atmosphere to ask questions, share tips and discuss relevant topics, typically in the presence of a social worker and nutritionist. Meetings are free and often feature a guest speaker. No registration is required.
