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 large support group and information resource for patients with intestinal failure.
