What is a Fecal Transplant?
During a fecal transplant (also called bacteriotherapy), stool is removed from a healthy subject, sanitized, and transferred to a patient suffering from persistent C. difficile colitis. If repeated antibiotic use has eliminated the “good” bacteria from the gastrointestinal tract, bacteriotherapy can restore balance.
