Kishore Iyer is director of adult and pediatric intestinal transplantation at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, surgical director of pediatric liver transplantation and an associate professor of surgery and pediatrics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Dr. Iyer trained in general surgery and pediatric surgery in the UK where he worked with Dr Adrian Bianchi and developed his early interest in short bowel syndrome and the use of intestinal lengthening procedures. He pursued research at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London, winning the 1996 British Association of Pediatric Surgeons Prize for his pioneering work identifying phytosterols in soy-based lipid emulsions as a potential cause for parenteral nutrition-associated liver disease in patients with intestinal failure.
Kishore trained in transplant surgery at Chicago and Omaha,
working as a liver and intestinal transplant surgeon at Omaha for almost 4
years. He was responsible for establishing
the intestinal rehabilitation program in Omaha, which he directed before moving
to Chicago to establish and direct the intestinal transplantation and
rehabilitation program at Northwestern University/Children’s Memorial Hospital. His current clinical and research interests
are in the areas of surgical management of intestinal failure, intestinal
transplant and TPN associated liver disease, as well as complex abdominal
tumors at the mesenteric root and portal hypertension surgery. He has published extensively in the areas of
intestinal failure and TPN-associated liver disease as well as intestinal and
pediatric liver transplantation. Dr. Iyer
is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a Fellow of the
American College of Surgeons. He was
until recently on the Pediatric Committee of UNOS (United network for Organ
Sharing) and a director on the Board of Trustees of the Oley Foundation, a

- A 24- Week Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Teduglutide in Subjects with Parental Nutrition-Dependent Short Bowel Syndrome CL0600-020
The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational drug called teduglutide is effective and safe. Teduglutide is similar to a protein the body makes. When people have SBS, their bodies do not make enough of the protein, and they have trouble getting nutrients and fluids...
