Multidisciplinary Intestinal Failure Care in Central Florida and Beyond
The world-class multidisciplinary intestinal failure care team at Nemours Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, ongoing care and education for families and kids with intestinal failure caused by short bowel syndrome, motility/movement disorders and absorptive disorders of the small intestines. We have a deep understanding of the physiological and psychological changes that occur as children grow and develop, and we personalize our treatments to your child’s specific physical and emotional needs — from initial diagnosis to transition to adult health care.
Because intestinal failure in children can cause life-threatening problems, your child’s care can’t wait. That’s why we offer appointments with multiple members of our intestinal failure team within days (not weeks) to evaluate your child’s symptoms and make recommendations for further testing or treatment at the very first visit.
In the most rare and complex cases, our award-winning electronic health record system allows our specialists to consult instantly across the Nemours Children’s System throughout Florida and at our sister hospital, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del. This means your child’s case can be reviewed by a large group of leading intestinal failure experts — without leaving the area.
