Intestinal Transplant in Children

Small Bowel Transplant for Intestinal Failure

Call for an Appointment

An intestinal transplant can be a lifesaving option for your child with intestinal failure. Duke is among a small number of U.S. hospitals with experienced transplant surgeons who perform intestinal transplants on children when disease prevents nutrients from being absorbed by the body. We have a long history of caring for children with gastrointestinal (GI) conditions, including short bowel syndrome, congenital intestinal disorders of malabsorption, trauma, dysmotility disorders such as pseudo-obstruction, and small bowel tumors, all of which can lead to intestinal failure. Our team will help your child through every step of this journey, from managing the condition before the transplant through recovery and follow-up.
