11 Health was created from a hospital bed in Oxford, United Kingdom.
Our founder and CEO, Michael Seres, suffered from severe Crohns Disease for most of his life and he ultimately required an intestinal transplant and an ileostomy.
Michael was the 11th person in the UK to have this procedure.
Michael’s post-operative care as an ileostomy patient was far from ideal and this mirrored the experiences of other patients. Despite the huge advances and improvements in healthcare globally, stoma patients were still being treated with the same bags and the same archaic principles. It was as if time had stood still.
