Patient Testimonials

We are always happy to share stories from our patients. Hopefully, they will help you gain more insight regarding how life might be with a Barnett Continent Intestinal Reservoir (BCIR). In addition, once you have surgery, we are committed to a smooth transition back home - you may find our "Patient Tips" helpful.

Our Patient Testimonials include stories and photos from actual patients. However, since we cannot assure you that your outcome will match the portrayals of these patients - we suggest you visit the Clinical Studies page where you will see data that reflects our outcomes that have been published in medical journals. The stories of our patients are not intended to replace the services of a trained health professional or to be a substitute for medical advice of physicians.

If you'd like to receive more information or a list of past patients with a BCIR, please email Susan Kay, R.N or call her at 1-800-336-0789. Don't forget to ask her to send you a CD about the BCIR procedure.

Some of our patients have shared their success stories with us. Hopefully, they will help you gain more insight regarding how life might be with a Barnett Continent Intestinal Reservoir.

Prior to my BCIR, I suffered with Ulcerative colitis for almost eight years and had no life. Twelve years ago, I had a BCIR and feel that if it was not for this surgery, I probably would not be on this side of the grass. The BCIR has given me great freedom and I count my blessings daily. It has allowed me to do the things I enjoy the most which is cherish my family and friends, be active and laugh often.
