What is FMT?

Faecal Microbiota Transplantation (also called FMT or stool or poo transplantation) is a treatment that involves the transfer of healthy bacteria from the stool of a healthy person (donor) into the intestines of the patient (recipient). This procedure creates a healthy balance of bacteria in the recipient’s intestine with the aim of treating ‘super-bug’ infections such as Clostridioides difficile or restoring a healthy gut microbiome.
