Pam Kee calls herself a “mixologist.”
But the concoction in her blender comes together at a hospital.
Kee is a nurse at Carolinas Medical Center-University, where she assists Dr. Barry Schneider with an unusual therapy that can cure a potentially deadly gastrointestinal infection.
The treatment is called a fecal transplant – and it’s just what the name implies.
Feces from a healthy donor is transferred into a sick patient to create a new, infection-free environment in the gut.
It may sound disgusting, but it works.
