Welcome to the Ostomy Association of South Australia

 


 

In Case Of Emergency Please Attend Your Local Public Hospital

As a non-profit organisation we serve the community by providing medical appliances, support and advice to members, their families and carers. Our members a have a stoma which is an opening formed on the skin where part of the digestive system empties. This maybe a result of birth defects, cancer, accident or disease. It may be permanent or temporary. Our members range in age from new born to over 100 years. There are approximately 44,000 Ostomates (people with a stoma) in Australia of which 2,300 are our members.
