Center for Advanced Intestinal Rehabilitation
Treatment for short-bowel syndrome consists primarily of nutritional management aimed at helping the remaining intestines adapt and take on the absorption functions that were lost. The treatment is usually divided into four stages:
- Parenteral nutrition
- Enteral nutrition
- Transition to food
- Total adaption
To learn more about each stage, visit our short bowel syndrome page in our conditions and treatments section, or watch and listen to Dr. Duggan as he explains what families can expect during the course of nutritional management.
