Making a Referral for an Intestinal or Multivisceral Transplant

We offer effective long-term treatment for life-threatening conditions of the digestive tract.

If an adult or child patient is unable to gain full nutrition from eating and drinking, it’s important to be referred for a comprehensive evaluation as soon as possible. A primary care physician or gastroenterologist (digestive system specialist) can refer patients to the Miami Transplant Institute for an evaluation. Patients can also contact our team directly to schedule an appointment.

Our transplant and intestinal rehabilitation team can draw on the comprehensive resources of Jackson Health System to provide multidisciplinary care—an important consideration because patients’ medical condition may affect multiple organs as well as the intestine.

Medical Conditions

There are many digestive system conditions that can require a life-saving transplant or rehabilitation, including:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Short bowel syndrome (short gut syndrome)
  • Gastrointestinal fistula
  • Vascular thrombosis
  • Bowel obstructions
  • Complications from total parenteral nutrition (TPN)
  • Prior abdominal surgery
  • Abdominal catastrophe
  • Frozen abdomen
  • Slow-growing tumors
  • Neuroendocrine tumors
  • Mesenteric fibroma
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Genetic disorders
