Russell Erlich doesn't look like someone who was once near death. But when an artery wrapped around his intestine, it almost killed him. Russell was treated at The Nebraska Medical Center's Intestinal Rehabilitation Program; something he believes saved his life. The medical center's IRP is one of the busiest programs of its kind in the world, staffed with doctors, nurses and therapists with extensive experience in treating all kinds of intestinal disorders and diseases. Russell believes this experience and care, along with his determination to survive saved his life.
