Intestinal Rehabilitation & Tra​nsplantation Program

The Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplantation Program at Lurie Children’s is one of the few programs in the nation dedicated to caring for children with an improperly functioning small bowel (small intestine). Intestinal failure occurs when this important part of the digestive system cannot absorb nutrients and fluids. A child with intestinal failure needs long-term nutritional support.
