Intestinal Transplantation

Intestinal transplant is a relatively new surgery for people whose intestines are failing. In some cases of severe Crohn's disease or other illnesses, most of the small intestine may be removed. Some people have so much of their small intestine removed that their bodies no longer can absorb nutrients (short bowel syndrome). Intestinal transplants carry a high risk of death during surgery and of complications, including rejection of the new organs.
