This presentation shares the history and future of ostomy and urinary diversions. Early on, procedures to divert urine from the body were considered the only alternative to death for many patients. Early techniques were beset with postoperative complications; sadly, most patients were left to find their own ways to manage, often leading to a life of isolation, skin problems, and odor. The absence of both surgical asepsis and anesthesia speaks volumes about both the skills of innovative surgeons performing these first procedures and the courage of their patients. Surgeons worked relentlessly to improve and refine these lifesaving procedures that today provide millions of patients with options that vary from a traditional non-continent ostomy to continent options, including an internal catheratizable pouch or a neobladder. Advancements have benefited today's population that face life without their native bladder. This fascinating history is discussed, along with current innovations that show the future holds great promise!
