For most indications and illnesses we use a course of 10 FMT treatments. Ten FMTs are usually required to ensure adequate establishment of a new colonic microbiome in the recipient.
FMT’s are usually done daily until the course is complete (we don’t do FMTs on weekends). We usually do only the first FMT via colonoscopy with all subsequent FMTs being administered by enema. Our nurse teaches you how to administer the FMT via enema safely and easily. You can pick up your FMT from the clinic and take it home to administer it, or organise to have it home delivered for an additional cost.
Recent studies in Ulcerative colitis have shown better response rates if more than 10 FMTs are given.
Short course FMT programs of 5 FMTs are sufficient for recurrent or chronic clostridium difficile infection or by request.
FMTs cost $400 each. This includes the cost of the donor, all materials required to prepare the FMT and the cost of the nurse who prepares the FMT.
Please call our office to discuss our terms and conditions.
The balance of the program fee is payable in the week before treatment commences. Payment can be made by direct bank transfer or over the phone via credit card – please ask for details (the IBAN details will be included in the reminder letter the week prior to the treatment date).
