When it Comes to Crohn's, a Fecal Transplant Can Save Lives

This procedure is a useful tool, so long as patients accept its benefits

While fecal transplants are growing in popularity and health experts are continuing to research the procedure and to personalize treatment, patient acceptance plays a major role. After all, some patients may be hesitant to accept an enema of someone else’s feces. Still, as distasteful as the idea might seem, we cannot ignore that fecal transplants have a dramatic success rate and that they are saving lives.
