Yes, small intestinal transplants have been around for a while; not as common as other organ transplants though. We don't do them at my hospital, so I couldn't give you the best updated information. Just google "intestinal transplant" or "small bowel transplant". If you are looking for something specific to your disease, add that on. I was surprised to see some places will do it for Crohn's and results encouraging compared to years ago.

I will seriously pray about this. DC is about 3-4 hrs from me but may be worth the trip!
