Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology


The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition offers consultation and inpatient services for all gastrointestinal, liver related and nutritional problems in children with special emphasis on:

  1. Gastroesophageal reflux: This is an area of faculty research interest. We are one of the few institutions offering Multiple Impedance Test in children. This test documents not only acid but non acid refluxes as well.
  2. Constipation: Another area of research interest. We offer a structured protocolized treatment program consisting of dietary, behavioral and life style changes along with medications.
  3. Gastrointestinal problems related to food allergy such as Eosinophilic Esophagitis, cow's milk protein allergy etc. We offer a comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment program.
  4. Tube feeding:  monitor nutritional requirements of special needs children.
  5. Chronic abdominal pain
  6. Inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
  7. Neonatal cholestasis, acute and chronic hepatitis.

Procedures: We perform upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopies with interventions such as polypectomy, hemostasis, dilatation, PEG placement etc.

Medical students interested in pediatrics are encouraged to take our fourth-year elective to learn more about the practice of gastroenterology.
