The UW Medicine Intestinal Care and Transplantation Clinic at UWMC provides compassionate and comprehensive care for people with intestinal failure. Physicians across the Pacific Northwest refer patients into our program – a testament to our staff’s experience and our patients’ outcomes.
Our team treats intestinal failure which results from a variety of conditions including:
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Necrotizing enterocolitis
Intestinal care or rehabilitation is the process of increasing the absorption of nutrients through selecting individualized medical, nutritional and surgical interventions to maintain and restore as much intestinal function as possible. By reducing or eliminating the need for parenteral nutrition (TPN) in our patients, we hope to reduce the risk of developing TPN-associated liver dysfunction and other complications. If intestinal transplantation is necessary, our experts will support you every step of the way – from the initial evaluation through management and follow-up care.
Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons, physicians, nurses, dieticians and pharmacists has acquired expertise over many years of managing cases of intestinal dysfunction or failure. Patients treated at UW Medicine programs have access to the latest treatments and ample opportunities to participate in multiple research trials aimed at better understanding of disease and refinement of treatments.
