Integrating research with clinical efforts is one of our
core values. The comprehensive nature of research within our center is a major
part of what sets Cincinnati Children's Intestinal Care Center apart from other
institutions. We work collaboratively to understand the deficits in care and
pathophysiology of the disease processes that lead to intestinal failure. The
intestinal rehabilitation program has collaborative basic and translational
research as well as active clinical trials within the Department of Surgery,
Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and Division of
Neonatology at Cincinnati Children’s.
You and your child are vital members of
our research team. More than 80 percent of our patients participate in clinical
research protocols, helping us to better understand and treat the diseases that
affect them. This patient support is critical to our mission of improving
outcomes for children battling intestinal failure which is a rare syndrome.
