Dietetic Gut Clinic

Once you have received a stoma, your GP or Gastroenterologist may advise you to see a Gastrointestinal Dietitian at the Dietetic Gut Clinic. Management of diet for stomas is one of the services our team has been offering to patients in Perth since the launch of our Gut Clinic in Nedlands and Murdoch.

Stoma diet

What is a stoma?

A stoma is an opening that connects part of the bowel to the outside of the body. Bowel content is “re-routed” to exit through the stoma on the outside of the abdomen. Colostomies & ileostomies are the most common types of stomas.
