Intestine

Treatment Options

At Nebraska Medicine, we offer a comprehensive Intestinal Failure Program featuring medical and surgical treatment options. These include:

  • Providing comprehensive medical care for adult and pediatric patients with complex liver and intestinal diseases
  • A multidisciplinary intestinal rehabilitation program for those patients on total parenteral nutrition (TPN), focusing on decreasing their need for TPN and possibly preventing or delaying the need for transplantation
  • Nutritional support
  • Omegavan trials for infants
  • Surgical treatment options, including lengthening procedures such as STEP (Serial Transverse Enteroplasty), tapering procedures, repair of fistulas and bowel reconnection.
  • Transplantation, including isolated intestinal transplant and liver/intestine/pancreas (multivisceral) transplantation, when medical or surgical treatment interventions fail
