I know a GI at Montefiore (NY)...they can't do FT for UC or children yet. However, they are doing it for cdiff and have completed a fairly large study showing the effectiveness with cdiff. That said, they do recongnize the potential with FT for UC and are in the process of bringing it mainstream. In fact, there are several GIs around the country who have submitted paperwork to the "powers to be" to get the ball rolling. Unfortunately, that could take years?
For now, yes, there is this 5 day "retreat" in Oregon. Like Edbar said, they do enema only, but do have a protocol. Sounds like the big hurdle for many on our board contemplating this procedure, is finding a donor. This is something that is supplied to you at this retreat as well.
Without knowing the credibility of the clinic, I'm with EqualsTwo, I want to hear from someone who goes through the clinic so we can hear about
their experience. Any feedback would be great, anyone?
