Complex Abdominal Surgeries
Surgeons at the Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplantation Center are skilled in complex abdominal surgeries that can restore gut function without the need for transplant.
Corrective and rehabilitative treatment options for short bowel syndrome or other intestinal disorders can include:
- Portal hypertension surgery
- Gastric bypass surgery corrections
- Removal of adhesions
- Reconnecting the bowel with the closure of your stoma
- Repair of any fistulae present
If your remaining bowel length is extremely short, or your intestinal disease is associated with liver failure, intestinal transplant may be the solution.
Fortunately, at UPMC, our comprehensive team of intestinal and multivisceral transplant surgeons, paired with gastroenterologists and digestive disease specialists, will work to provide an appropriate treatment for you.
