Complicated C. difficile Clinic
Friday | 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
The Complicated C. difficile Clinic treats patients with recurrent Clostridium difficile (C.diff) infections. Your healthcare provider will refer you to our clinic. When antibiotics fail to work, we use fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), an effective treatment that cures the infection in about 90% of patients. We use pre-screened stool from OpenBiome, a non-profit stool bank.
To be considered for potential FMT, you must have either of the following:
- Two documented episodes of mild to moderate C. diff that have not responded to at least 6-8 weeks of treatment with appropriate antibiotics
- One documented episode of severe C. diff infection that permits hospital admission
Referral only: Contact your healthcare provider
Learn more about our digestive health services.
What to Expect at Your First Visit
During your first visit, we will determine if you are a candidate for FMT. If you qualify, the procedure will generally be scheduled 1-2 weeks later. You will be seen by doctors from one or more subspecialties, and your case will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary team.
Please do not bring a stool sample to your initial clinic visit.
Cost & Insurance
The clinic visits, laboratory studies and colonoscopy are considered part of the general work-up for diarrhea. Depending upon your insurance, your policy may cover these costs. You will be responsible for any copays required by your insurance.

Currently, there is a nation-wide shortage of the Yellow Fever vaccine (YF-Vax ). Because of a total depletion of YF-Vax, the manufacturer (Sanofi Pasteur) has worked with CDC and the US Food and Drug Administration to make an alternative yellow fever vaccine, Stamaril, available at select locations until YF-Vax supply returns, which is expected by the end of 2018. Find locations currently administering the vaccine.
If you are a UVA Employee: Please note that UVA WorkMed and Employee Health practices for paying for the travel visit have changed effective January 1, 2018. Please check with your supervisor to find out if your area requires reimbursement after you have paid for the visit.
