Nutrition and enteral program

Our services include two therapies, enteral nutrition therapy and total parenteral nutrition. 

Enteral nutrition therapy

Enteral nutrition therapy (ENT) is a method of providing dietary treatment for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as:

  • Crohn's disease
  • Ulcerative colitis

Enteral nutrition is usually taken in the form of nutrient-dense formulas that can supplement calorie intake or act as a primary source of nutrition.

Total parenteral nutrition therapy

Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is a type of nutritional care involving intravenous fluids containing fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and other substances given through a centrally placed catheter. 

TPN is used for treatment of conditions like:

  • Crohn's disease
  • Cancer
  • Short bowel syndrome
  • Ischemic bowel disease
