Call for an Appointment 919-613-7777

An intestinal transplant may be a surgical option to treat your child with intestinal failure due to a variety of causes, including but not limited to short bowel syndrome, defective gastrointestinal motility, abdominal trauma, and congenital intestinal disorders of malabsorption. Duke is among a small number of U.S. Hospitals with experienced transplant surgeons who perform intestinal transplants on children. Our team will help you and your child through every step of this journey, from managing the condition before transplant through transplant recovery and follow-up.
