Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) offers a way to keep you nourished when your gastrointestinal tract is not able to function or your condition requires complete bowel rest. With a dedicated team that includes nationally renowned nutrition experts, we deliver highly specialized care to fully meet your nutrition needs.
Experts within our GI Nutrition Services program specialize in helping patients with complex gastrointestinal disorders improve their quality of life. We are not content with only meeting your basic nutrition needs. We use TPN as part of a comprehensive approach to help you return to eating solid foods. In fact, we've helped some patients come off TPN in as little as five months.
