RDS Infusions is a gastroenterology clinic in Tampa, Florida specializing in the improvement of the gut microbiome. Primarily, our clinic focuses on treating drug resistant C. Diff., C. Diff-related Ulcerative Colitis, in addition to other GI disorders.
For patients suffering with Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff), we offer Fecal Microbiota Transplantations, also known as FMT or fecal transplants, which is the treatment process of transplanting fecal bacteria from a healthy individual into the gut of the recipient. For more information on the FMT Procedure, click here.
For other gastrointestinal disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, we use a custom probiotic infusion, in which up to 6 trillion bacterial colonies are infused into the gut microbiome. Probiotic Infusions improve bacterial diversity in the gastrointestinal tract.
Fecal Microbiota Transplant
(For C. difficile Only)
Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT), also known as a stool transplant, is the process of transplantation of fecal bacteria from a healthy individual into a recipient. This innovative treatment resolved 80-90% of infections stemmed from recurrent C. difficile, during randomized clinical trials, though RDS Infusions has seen results higher than 95%.
Up to 6 trillion bacterial colonies are infused during a single procedure. Reduced bacterial diversity has been associated with many diseases, including but not limited to Irritable Bowel Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Probiotic Infusions improve bacterial diversity in the gastrointestinal tract, which can help improve symptoms associated with these GI disorders.
“Truly a miracle. I’m referring to the FMT infusions done by Dr. David Shepard at RDS Infusions. For any of you suffering from C-Diff and related problems, I counsel you to make an appointment. Start living again. It just works.”
