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.

It has been 10 months since my surgery and life is wonderful! I can go to the beach and not worry where a restroom is. I can wear light colored clothes again and not be stopped by the TSA in the airport. I thank God every day for this wonderful gift.
