My husband has what we think is chronic pouchitis.  His current gastro doctor is saying the next step is reversal to an external bag.  I'm looking for recommendations for any doctors in the Nasvhille or Memphis area who may have expertise in pouchitis.

Thanks in advance,

I used to be a patient at the digestive disease center at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville.  I had great results with them. My doctor’s name was Dr. Dawn Beaulieu. She was very knowledgeable and helpful.  She specializes in J-pouch patients. 

I highly recommend the Vanderbilt digestive disease center.   I think it would be worth making an appointment to see if they can help your husband’s pouchitis before you schedule a surgery.  


Hope this helps
