At OstomyCure, we are highly committed to improving the life of patients with a stoma or with related inflammatory bowel diseases. Our mission is to give patients back their quality of life using the latest technology - with no compromises on quality or safety.
We help patients who already have an ileostomy, who are going to have an ileostomy, and patients who are looking for a better solution than that provided by conventional stoma surgery. The TIES® Implant is adapted for patients who are in the process of or who have already undergone ileostomy surgery.
The TIES® Solution, which comprises an implant, a lid with a hatch and a bag holder, intends to provide the patient with a controlled continent stoma management solution that intends to eliminate the need to constantly wear an ostomy bag after removal of the large intestine.The solution also intends to prevent skin complication as it does not allow the appliances to touch the skin. No more worrying about smell, noise, leaks, skin rash or loose bags.
