Only a few transplant centers in the world offer intestinal transplantation as a treatment option for intestinal failure and complications related to parenteral nutrition (PN). The Cleveland Clinic Pediatric Intestinal Rehabilitation Program and Nutrition Support Team provides patients with a unique opportunity to be evaluated, supported, and treated by a world class team of pediatric gastroenterologists, parenteral nutrition experts and transplant surgeons. The Transplant Center at Cleveland Clinic is recognized as one of the fewest and largest in the nation and offers the opportunity for heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, composite tissue (face) and intestinal transplantation. The expertise achieved in the transplant field since the “pioneer” years translates into today’s world class accomplishments and outcomes.
Cleveland Clinic has been ranked for years by U.S. News and World Report as among the best hospitals in the nation and the Children’s Hospital is ranked in the top 15. For decades, the Clinic has offered alternative options to thousands of patients both nationally and internationally. The Pediatric Gastroenterology Department, recognized as one of the top Pediatric GI departments in the state of Ohio and the nation, offers patients a comprehensive “one-stop service” that includes diagnostic tools, nutrition support and surgical treatment whenever indicated.
