New Intestinal Failure Centre now open

Today is a big day for Sahlgrenska University Hospital! The inauguration of the  Intestinal Failure Centre is taking place right now.

Head of centre Jan Brun and pediatric surgeon Helena Broberg present the new Intestinal Failure Centre.

It is an even bigger day for the entire team working with this patient group, who have worked hard the past years to make this a reality. It is now one of its kind, in Sweden. Congratulations!

But most importantly, this is for the patients and their relatives. Both children and adults. By connecting all specialist competencies to one centre, better care will be provided. The key? To involve the patients and their close ones in the development of their care.

Every year we welcome patients from Norway, Denmark and Iceland  for treatment for intestinal failures. The centre hopes to expand this collaboration further in the years to come.
