How to Select the Best FMT Donor

Oct. 25, 2017

Dr. Gail Hecht debunks the myth that a patient’s family or friend is the best donor for a fecal microbiota transplantation.

Selection of a donor for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is critical to the safety of the procedure. In this brief video interview, Gail Hecht, MD, MS, AGAF, explains what to consider when selecting a donor for your patient.

If you perform FMT or plan to in the future, join Dr. Hecht, who serves as chair of the AGA Center for Gut Microbiome Research and Education, for A Clinician’s Guide to Fecal Microbiota Transplant, a day-long workshop on Jan. 18, just prior to the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress™. The Congress will take place Jan. 18-20, 2018, in Las Vegas, NV, and is the must-attend meeting for all inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) health care professionals. You must be registered for the Congress to attend the workshop. Learn more about the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress.
