Intestinal transplant (small bowel transplant) at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics has become an increasingly relevant option for patients diagnosed with severe short bowel syndrome.
 
Though it is a relatively recent innovation, the UW Health transplant team believes small bowel transplants are becoming more and more viable as a method of treating the serious complications that can arise from short bowel syndrome.

Recent Developments
 
Recent clinical progress in the field of small bowel transplantation supports their optimism. The development of more effective immunosuppressive agents has decreased the number of organ rejections and increased patient survival rates nationwide.
 
Though still cautious in evaluation, our transplant team believes small bowel transplantation will continue to evolve, providing a more physiologic approach to the problem of short bowel syndrome.
