Conditions We Treat at the UPMC Center for Intestinal Health and Nutrition Support

Significant illnesses always impact gut function in some way. But when these problems become chronic, nutritional intervention is necessary for a return to good health.

From developing a personalized nutritional treatment plan to supporting a person’s return to normal diet after surgery, our doctors at the UPMC Center for Intestinal Health and Nutrition Support work closely with a wide variety of specialists to increase overall quality of life.

We support the nutritional needs of adults and children experiencing:

  • Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease
  • GI trauma and recovery from abdominal surgery, including major bowel resections or bariatric surgery
  • Extreme weight loss following bariatric surgery
  • Intestinal transplantation requiring intravenous nutritional support prior to transplant surgery
  • Disorders affecting the enteric nervous system, which controls the body’s ability to move food through the digestive system
  • Liver or pancreatic diseases
  • Anorexia and bulimia

Our experts are trained to treat complex cases of patients who have received care from other centers before ultimately coming to UPMC for their care.
