The Complicated C. difficile Clinic treats patients with recurrent Clostridium difficile (C.diff) infections. The C. diff bacteria can cause severe diarrhea and even life-threatening infections. When antibiotics fail to work, the clinic uses Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT), an effective treatment that cures the infection in about 90 percent of patients. We use pre-screened stool from OpenBiome, a non-profit stool bank.
To qualify for FMT, you must have either of the following:
- Two documented episodes of mild to moderate C. diff that have not responded to 6-8 weeks of treatment with antibiotics
- Black Black Parka Wearing Black Hard Parka Wearing Parka Hard Hard Zizzi Zizzi Wearing Zizzi Hard Black Hard Zizzi Wearing Parka Hard Black Wearing Parka Zizzi Black Zizzi Wearing Parka One documented episode of severe C. diff infection that permits hospital admission
What to Expect at Your First Visit
During your first visit, we will determine if you are a candidate for FMT. If you qualify, the procedure will generally be scheduled 1-2 weeks later. You will be seen by doctors from one or more subspecialties, and your case will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary team.
Please do not bring a stool sample to your initial clinic visit.
Cost & Insurance
The clinic visits, laboratory studies and colonoscopy are considered part of the general work-up for diarrhea. Depending upon your insurance, your policy may cover these costs. You will be responsible for any copays required by your insurance.
