Intestinal Failure

Complex GI Centre

Which patients can benefit?

We treat patients with type II and type III intestinal failure, needing complex GI surgery and nutritional support. This includes patients with:
  • Cancer and complex IBD, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Abdominal catastrophes and surgical complications
  • Enterocutaneous fistula, short bowel syndrome and chronic obstruction (sclerosing peritoneal adhesions)

Examples of treatments and procedures

  • Multidisciplinary team management of surgery

    Where surgery is needed, our clinicians and clinical teams work together to ensure patients receive a highly structured personalised plan, from nutrition and pre-operative preparation through to post-operative rehabilitation.

  • Multidisciplinary team management of complex patients

    And when it comes to wider treatment, your patient benefits from the combined experience of a whole team of clinicians, including clinical nurse specialists, radiologists, dietitians, pharmacists, consultant oncologists and haematologists, surgeons, pathologists and microbiologists.

  • Home parenteral nutrition

    Our programme allows patients with chronic conditions who need parenteral nutritional care following treatment to receive this support at home. Due to the complex nature of this treatment, The Princess Grace Hospital is one of the few in the UK able to offer it.
