Meet Tyler

Born: 2002

Diagnosis: Short bowel syndrome (SBS), gastroschisis

Services used: Respiratory, infusion nursing and pharmacy, specialized nutrition

Tyler's Challenge


Two surgeries within 16 hours of birth left Tyler with an extremely short bowel (6cm) and little hope for survival.


Partnering with health care professionals, PHS clinical team members, including our infusion nurses, worked to decrease TPN feedings through a central line and increase enteral feedings into Tyler’s stomach with a food pump.

Tyler's Solution


Tyler is now a young man and no longer needs g-tube feedings.

“PHS was there for us – they said these are our options, this is what we can do for you. So we took the path that we did, and we obviously chose the right path.”
