"An Introduction to the Pelvic Pouch Procedure"

"An Introduction to the Pelvic Pouch Procedure" is considered an essential tool to address concerns and questions from patients who are undergoing the Pelvic Pouch Procedure. By providing a familiarity of the experience and process for the prospective patient, a level of understanding is achieved, alleviating pre-operative anxiety and concern. The video adopts the human perspective through a patient's point of view. The patient reflects her own past experience as she takes the viewer through pre-admission, the hospital stay, recovery and discharge.

This video was produced for Mount Sinai Hospital in 1998 and is given to all of our patients in the pre-admission phase. It has been converted for the Web from the original VHS video tape version. In it's entirety, it is 28 minutes long and has been divided into sections for viewing on the Web.

"In Control / Life After Your Ostomy"`


"In Control / Life After Your Ostomy " is a video of a very personal,
inspirational account of five people's lives following ostomy surgery. It
addresses four frequently asked questions: "Why was this surgery necessary?",
"What can I expect after surgery?", "How do I empty and change my pouch?", and
"What do I need to know for day-to-day living?"

The clear message expressed by all the individuals is that there is life
after ostomy surgery, that you can live with an ostomy and life can be as full
and rewarding as before surgery.
