Unlike some hospitals, we treat the entire range of pediatric problems, from the routine to the rare. This means that your child will receive the most accurate diagnosis available, based on our experts’ years of clinical and research experience.

Here, highly skilled doctors and nurses treat infants and children with gastrointestinal problems such as:

  • Colic
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Failure-to-thrive
  • Recurrent abdominal pain
  • Gastritis
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Our nationally recognized experts also provide highly specialized care for patients with difficult-to-treat conditions, such as celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, biliary disease and complex liver disorders, eosinophilic esophagitis, and acid peptic disease. We assist children who suffer from gastrointestinal problems caused by allergic diseases, including allergic gastroenteropathy and formula intolerances. In addition, our experts are skilled in colorectal reconstruction.
