Many patients do not die of their disease, die of malnutrition. Can be saved by artificial feeding, a new treatment is very easy and secure.

Should be treated with artificial feeding:

  • patients who will not eat
    (anorexia nervosa, cancer cachexia, anorexia of the elderly)
  • patients who can not eat
    for cancers of the head and neck
    for neurological diseases (stroke, ALS, Parkinson's)
    for intestinal obstruction (abdominal carcinomas, pseudoobstruzione)
  • patients should not eat
    for fistulas, short bowel or malabsorption
    for Crohn's disease
Patient after 3 months of artificial feeding

The Nutrition Section is useful for patients with dietary problems or malnutrition.

The treatment protocols are highly effective: patients who have recovered 10 kg weight increase per month.
