Gastrointestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Program at UPMC

UPMC performed the world’s first liver-intestinal transplant in 1990. Since then, the UPMC Gastrointestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Program has established itself as a leader, offering a range of transplantation and rehabilitation services for patients with intestinal failure.

UPMC provides multidisciplinary care through our team of world-class surgeons, gastroenterologists, internists, and dietitians who treat each case with the most advanced therapies available.

Many patients experience success with rehabilitation services. Others with more advanced disease benefit from transplant. As one of the largest programs in the world, our outcomes consistently meet or exceed national averages. The UPMC Gastrointestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Program also provides vital services to veterans with intestinal failure through a partnership with the Veterans Health Administration.
