Our hospital-grade products are in stock and ready for complimentary contact-free curbside pickup. Simply give us a call at (770) 425-7718 or drop by to browse our inventory at our Roswell store location.

Whether you prefer 1 or 2 piece pouches, we have them all! Unsure of which to choose? Learn about the different pouches available to see which is right for you here: ??

  • 1 Piece Pouch - The first question to ask is would you feel more comfortable with a 1 piece or 2 piece pouch. The benefits of a 1 piece bag include peace-of-mind knowing there is less of a chance of leaks and a thinner appearance. This can be especially helpful with special events where garments may be more form-fitted or short-term use during athletic activities.

  • 2 Piece Pouch - For 2 piece pouches, the connecting wafer stays in place. As a result, the process of changing the pouch is faster and there is less of a risk of causing irritation to your skin. These pouches work well for everyday tasks both at home or work. ?

Drainable vs Closed
If you like the idea of a disposable one-time use pouch, a closed bag may be your preferred option. However, to lower costs and for environmental reasons, many appreciate the option of drainable pouches for repeated use. Whichever works better for you, 1 or 2 piece, drainable or closed, or a combination of pouch styles, we have the highest quality pouches available on the market at our convenient store location.?

Stoma Caps
Speaking of options, stoma caps are smaller ostomy bags that can be easier to hide during short-term use. For example, a stoma cap may be the preferred choice to wear under a bathing suit or a form-fitted dress as well as during more intimate moments. Most of our shoppers enjoy having a variety of bags for different purposes. Unsure of which style you need for a specific event or activity? Our knowledgeable staff is here to help with any questions you may have about our products. 

Wafers
Besides the varied type of pouch you choose at Northside Medical Supply, you will also find high-quality wafers. This element is also called flange, baseplate, or barrier. It attaches to the pouch and secures the pouch to the skin with an adhesive backing. These pieces can come in a 1 piece or 2 piece style and may be cut to fit or come precut. Additionally, some wafers require tape to stay in place while others use design features such as tapered edges to eliminate the need for tape. The level of convexity and any sensitivities to adhesives should be considered before deciding on a brand or style. 

Hygiene and Care Items
We have ALL the ostomy and urostomy hygiene items to keep you comfortable! Just as with our pouches and wafers, we stock our inventory with the most recommended pastes, skin barriers, adhesive remover solutions, cleansers, deodorizers, wipes, adhesives, and replacement rings on the market. From hospital-grade cleansers and hygiene items like body wash, deodorizers, adhesive wipes, and barrier creams to specific medical care needs such as ostomy bag adhesives, liners, dressings, tail closers, scissors, and clamps, we look forward to helping you find everything on your list at Northside Medical Supply.

Accessories
In fact, we even have a full supply of ostomy and urostomy accessories! You can safely pick up sleeves, kits, containers, stoma cones, hanging bags, and support belts without having to leave your car. This is the safest way to shop with the most knowledgeable staff members around! Why waste time hoping to find quality brands and the items you need at pharmacies and big box stores?
