Because Oley receives many inquiries from patients seeking specialized medical care, we have compiled a list of medical centers with expertise in short bowel syndrome, nutritional and/or surgical management of intestinal failure and/or intestinal transplantation. The centers are listed alphabetically by the state they are located in.  We realize there are many other capable clinicians/centers offering optimal care and could not begin to capture them all. This list reflects centers that work closely with the Oley Foundation. The Oley Foundation cannot endorse or refer members to individual physicians or medical centers, including those listed below. Questions, comments or additions can be sent to Joan Bishop.

Other organizations may be able to help you find other specialists in such areas as:

  • Ostomy skin care nurse or WOCN, (select “Patient Information” then “Find a Nurse in Your Area” on the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse Society web page)
  • Mitochondrial Disease (secure form to complete from United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation)
  • Feeding programs for children who haven’t learned to eat by mouth

Certification Makes a Difference
