Intestine Transplant Outcomes
When you receive an intestine transplant at Henry Ford, you can expect survival rates that equal or exceed expected results. These findings come from the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).
Most of our intestine transplant patients no longer need intravenous feedings, called total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Intestine transplants can improve your quality of life by reducing TPN-related infections and complications.
Henry Ford patients wait an average of 10 months for an intestine transplant. This wait is similar to the national average.
