Intestine Transplant and Rehabilitation

If you are struggling with intestine failure, intestine rehabilitation can improve your quality of life. The goal of the Henry Ford Intestine Transplant and Rehabilitation Program is to help reduce your dependence on total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or intravenous (IV) feedings, and prevent you from needing an intestine transplant.

Intestine failure occurs if your body can’t digest and absorb important food, fluids and nutrients. You may get nutrition through TPN or IV feedings. Over time, this can lead to infection, blood clots or liver problems. Your intestine failure may continue to get worse.

We offer hope at the Henry Ford Intestine Transplant and Rehabilitation Program. It’s the only program of its kind in Michigan with the full range of treatments for intestine failure:
