Intestine

Our Extraordinary Program...

The Nebraska Medical Center formally developed the Intestinal Failure Program in 2000 to provide consultation, management and long-term follow-up to adults and children with intestinal failure and short-bowel syndrome. Today, the program treats patients from all over the world and has gained global recognition for its innovative and multidisciplinary approach to the care of these individuals.

Our Patient Care...

Our program provides a multidisciplinary team approach to intestinal failure and offers patients focused and customized care. Specialists on our team have expertise in hepatology, gastroenterology, psychology, child life and surgery for both adult and pediatric patients. Continuity of care is accentuated with specially-trained transplant nurse coordinators, social workers, nutritionists, pharmacologists and patient financial counselors, as well as volunteer services.

We provide some of the most comprehensive outpatient and follow-up care in the country, helping our outcomes and survival rates exceed national averages. Our intestinal failure team provides extensive support and education to patients and their families throughout the transplant journey, and even after they return home.
