« Talmudic Question #98 | Main | Pictures Considered #4 : Koch’s Development of Early InstaGram Positive Photography »



I spoke to the office of Dr. Alister George in Thousand Oaks, CA last week - and he is doing fecal microbial transplants on an outpatient basis. I have also been told, just last week, that Providence-St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank, UCLA Medical and Cedars Sinai all have protocols, but suspended their "programs" when the FDA kicked up IND requirements earlier this year. However, there was an immediate uproar, as the FMTs have been so successful and saved patients from so much suffering that the FDA has backed down (officially as of late July, see their website) and the door seems to be open again. I inquired last week by phone at Providence St. Joseph's and was told we would need to find a GI willing to perform it that had priveleges at St. Joseph's and then it would be possible. You could call and ask to speak with the GI department Nurse Manager and see if they can give you a name of a doctor to call.
