Adult Short Bowel Syndrome: Nutritional, Medical, and Surgical Management serves as a practical guide to the medical, surgical, and nutritional care of complex patients with Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS). The book provides practical information on SBS with the most up-to-date, evidence-based information currently available. Additionally, this text provides global perspectives and highlights emerging areas of research influencing care of patients with SBS. Intended for nutritionists, dieticians, physicians (specifically, general practitioners, gastroenterologists, and surgeons), nurse practitioners, pharmacists, students, and researchers, this book serves as a quick reference on the medical, surgical, and nutrition care of complex patients with short bowel syndrome and provides an analysis of the underlying nutrition research influencing the clinical care of these patients.
- Presents emerging areas of research related to Short Bowel Syndrome (gut microbiome, pre/probiotics) as well as current applications in clinical practice
- Compiles an overview, classification, and complications of the Short Bowel Syndrome disease state
- Contains effective dietary concepts (including rationale and use of oral rehydration solutions) for managing malabsorption caused by Short Bowel Syndrome
- Includes medical and pharmaceutical management techniques to compliment nutrition interventions
- Discusses surgical options for consideration in patients with Short Bowel Syndrome
- Highlights International perspectives on treatment and care
- Provides quick reference tables, algorithms, case studies, and figures
- Uses experiential guidance from experts where no data exists to provide evidence-based guidance

Ms. Corrigan is the Clinical Nutrition Manager of the Home Nutrition Support Service and the Center for Gut Rehabilitation and Transplant at Cleveland Clinic. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Dietetics at Bowling Green State University and completed a Master's Degree in Public Health from Cleveland State/North East Ohio Medical University. In her clinical practice, Mandy has specialized in the delivery of parenteral nutrition to patients with short bowel syndrome. Mandy's clinical research and publication topics include home parenteral nutrition (HPN), infection control strategies for HPN patients, management of fluids and electrolytes, and care of patients with gastrointestinal compromise.
Dr. Roberts is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in Medical Dietetics and Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Her clinical expertise is caring for patients with malabsorptive and dysmotility syndromes requiring nutrition support. She specializes in clinical and translational research aimed at elucidating the intestinal absorption of bioactive compounds for prevention of chronic disease. Dr. Robert's laboratory focuses on the development of nutrition-based, human clinical trials and the impact of dietary patterns on disease prevention.
