We specialize in caring for your child's digestive system. A variety of gastroenterological problems involving the digestive system can occur in children, such as conditions involving the stomach, liver and pancreas. Our dedicated team evaluates and manages all problems effecting a child's gastrointestinal tract.

The Children's Hospital offers comprehensive expert gastroenterology care. We have an outstanding group of board-certified gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists and nurse practitioners. Our staff interacts closely with other related disciplines and departments including pediatric allergy, endocrinology and pulmonary medicine.
